Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The robe is light golden-yellow with light green reflections of good intensity.The disk is bright, limpid and transparent.

Aroma

The wine shows youth.The nose is marked, pleasant, intense and distinguished. We perceive a dominant of complex, crystallized and fruity scents, Mirabelle, Dante plum and honey with a fine smoky touch. The airing reminds and enhances the previous scents and reveals orange blossom and quince. The healthy maturity of the grapes is excellent and provides a clear and distinguished profile

Palate

The onset in the mouth is moderately ample and round. The alcohol support is apparent and full-bodied. The wine evolves on a medium of marked vivacity, with a sparkling note. The range of flavours is in line with that of the nose, still dominated by yellow fruits, Dante plum, Mirabelle, quince, honey and this slight yet complex smoky touch. We can taste a delicate bitterness. The finish has a good length, 8 caudalies, and a frank and persistent liveliness.The structure is rich and opulent. From this range, we can see the really beautiful fleshy and soil profile of the grape variety.

Foods Matching

It can be associated with duck rillettes, a goose foie gras sausage or a sliced poultry with caramelized onions. It goes wonderfully with soft and washed-rind cheeses, such as Livarot. Serve at 12
