Tasting notes

This wine shows plenty of yellow fruit, as well as fresh herbs and floral notes. The taste is pleasant, with greasy white/yellow fruits (sweet apple, pineapple, white peach). Further on a light minerale expression, some mint, anise and white pepper. The finish is well-balanced and holds pretty well in the mouth. Juicy and lively, somewhat fat (hot summer of 2018). Value for money, a pleasant and convincing wine; goes well with fish and Moroccan chicken tagine.  [July 2019]

Quote & Reviews

Gilles Ferran: “Robe jaune pâle aux reflets verts. Un nez sur les fruits blancs (poire, pêche blanche) et exotiques, note miellée et fleur d’acacia. La bouche est ample, minérale et croquante sur le fruit blanc frais, fidèle au nez. Vin gourmand et rafraichissant.”
