Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Pale gold colour with a straw glint, clear and brilliant, rare bubbles of medium size, non-persistent cordon. Open nose with notes of lime, verbena, honeysuckle, frank and fine. Supple attack, with notes of pear in syrup and elderflower, full-bodied, with a hint of white pepper and toast. The finish is sapid, full-bodied, spicy, with a powerful and persistent finish of brioche, candied citrus fruit and white pepper... Ideal as an aperitif or on a seafood platter!
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
