Tasting Notes

Clear golden yellow colour. A distinguished nose combining white fruit, mineral and vegetal notes and almonds. Round and full on the palate, with racy aromas invigorated by a lovely freshness. Discreet oak, long finish, a quality Burgundy. (Tasted in 2023)

Pale yellow colour. Typical nose of ripe white fruit, with woody notes and greedy pastry accents. Creamy and fleshy on the palate, developing a highly perfumed range in which the wood remains discreet. Serve with white meat (tasted in 2022).
