Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Beautiful highlights decorate the pale color of this wine that will offer you a first nose recalling blackcurrant and wild asparagus fragrances. Are following floral scents of mimosas and acacia. In mouth, it is its freshness and its mineral side that stand out. All of its flavors are making an extremely pleasant and elegant wine.
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.

The grapes and the musts are carefully selected to obtain an optimum and unique quality for each wine. Each hectare, located on a soil made of clay, has 6 500 plants.
