"Ripe Fruit and Freshness"

Tasting note

Open nose, intense and complex with floral acacia honey aromas associated with citronella and crystallized fruits (pineapple, apricot, and quince).

Long persistent aromas sharpened by hints of fresh fruit. Round and full in the mouth, sometimes creamy but always balanced by a frank and refreshing vivacity. It’s strong point,  a light wine which is easy to drink.

Serving

(10°C) Wonderful cocktail wine, blends nicely with foie gras, strong cheeses, some desserts, especially pears and almonds.

Ageing

Can be drunk young or after a few years of ageing.
