Tasting notes
Lightly golden color; it is a fresh and a mineral white wine. Its aromas recall white flowers, hazelnut and lemon-grass. Rather lively when young, this well fruited wine quite rapidly acquires a smoothness which evolves into worthy body, length and lusciousness. This accessible wine shows a good balance between its fruity content and its enjoyably long finish.
Food pairing
It will be paired with hot starters, fish and seafood, cooked meat or many cheeses.
Aging potential
Ready to drink now, or to keep in the cellar between 2 and 5 years.
