This wine has a wonderfully intense and lively colour with a nice crystalline metallic sheen over a young, fresh and alert pale green with hints of pale yellow. When rolled in the glass its legs are structured and oily. It has a magnificent pure and sophisticated aroma which generously releases a sense of freshness, openness and perfumed, expressive, fruity and floral spontaneity with delicate hints of muscat, white peach, lemon balm, rose, hawthorn, jasmine, freesia, lime-tree and cherry blossom, lychee and pear. One is immediately impressed by its rare elegance and aromatic charm. On the palate it reveals all of its harmony and balance. This is a fresh and refreshing dry wine, with a wonderful heady and rounded generosity that is combined with a remarkable sapidity, it has a full and delicious flavour that is filled with charm and sophistication. This wine is the result of only the best wine-making experience and techniques, the 2015 harvest produced very healthy and mature grapes. Best consumed immediately or within 3 years as an aperitif. Best served at 8°C to accompany oven-baked or pan-fried fish, in cream sauce, red mullet, turbot, sander, lobster, crab and oriental or spiced Indian dishes. This is a wine which goes perfectly well with all kinds of dishes and cooking styles, including white meat, veal, poultry and pheasant.

A light touch is conveyed by aromas of honeysuckle, while the off-dry palate is balanced by fresh, citric verve. This wine has a dancing, easygoing nature marked by freshness and lightness in equal measure. Asian food flavors suggest themselves for this super-balanced, playful white.

Orange blossom, ripe melon and pineapple flavors are layered with juicy acidity and a hint of stony mineral in this zesty white, with a lightly spiced finish. Drink now. 5,600 cases imported.
