Dl63 Golden White. Palate starts with apricot, and heat, reminding me of La Tour Blanche, with acidity and pineapple-like. Vey lovely, but junior to the best bottling of the ’52.

20% opacity, rich amber/tan. Wonderful fruit on the nose, apples, and young wood. Smooth, very fresh, great array of flavours - apple, young cedar.
