Description

A clear wine with a golden yellow color and dense texture.

Intense aromas gradually reveal their rich palette. Ripe yellow apple, persimmon, yellow plum, and pineapple. Perceptions of candied lemon, honey and dry yellow flowers follow. Slight hints of fine lees play with almonds, butter, vanilla, and a gentle touch of caramel. The finish is herbal, of rosemary and marjoram.

It spoils us with its balance on the palate. It is soft, with well-integrated alcohols. Its youthful freshness indicates that the wine will continue to develop, with a mineral and slightly astringent finish. It is an intense wine, full-bodied, and long-lasting persistence. First the flavors of sweet spices are confirmed, with a slight perception of licorice, followed by ripe and candied fruit.

A wine that will go perfectly with complex haut-cuisine dishes composed of fish with various purees or creamy sauces. Also with poultry, pheasant - especially with crispy baked skin but also with lamb shanks and succulent pork ribs.
