This leads with site-typical aromas of musk and decadently ripe fruit (here, pear and quince). But as soon as you get the wine in your mouth, there is a delightful freshness that the nose did not lead you to anticipate, here with juicy apple joining the fruit chorus. Sweet-savory suggestions of raw scallop lend mouthwatering appeal to a lusciously and downright refreshingly persistent finish, to which that mysterious muskiness of Doctor adds its unique animal intrigue.
