Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its pale straw colour with green reflections offers a fresh, clean aroma, with fine woody, hazelnut and white fruit notes. As for the taste, this wine is balanced, honest, fine, distinctive and long.
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.

Trading houses often remain in the same family. passing from one generation to another.
