Fruity and well-rounded

Its light straw color offers a nice nose of citrus with floral notes. On the palate, this wine is round with a coated and savory finish.

Features

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.

Do you know ?

In Burgundy, the term "climate" is used to designate different localities benefiting from various geological and climatic conditions.
