Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Pale color with bright green reflections, pretty distinctive nose, fresh acacia flowers, passion fruit, lemon zest, mineral hint of flint, good balance on a wine with a medium body but quite fleshy, dry and lively , nice well signed character with a hint of quince paste which becomes complex with the notes of the nose, frank, straight, fresh finish with flavor.
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.

Biodynamic viticulture is based on the research of the balance of the vines with his immediate and more distant environment. This method appeared in 1924, under the influence of Rudolf Steiner, an Austrian philosopher and agronomist.
