Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its light straw color offers a pretty nose of fresh citrus zest and fresh almond. In the mouth, this wine presents a nice balance and has good envelope. It is frank, wiry with a tense finale and a mineral touch.
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 ?

- Terroir: The Marsanne grape variety is based on the cooler slopes of the left bank of the Rhône on sandy soils.
- Viticulture: The yields of these plots are limited so as to ensure optimum ripeness of the grapes.
- Vinification: The vinification takes place at low temperature in stainless steel vats. The wine is then matured on fine lees with stirring for 4 months.
