Tasting Note

A pale gold hue, limpid, which sublimates a delicate bubble. At the first nose, a few brioche notes, slightly toasted as well as aromas of ripe yellow fruits such as mirabelle plums. When aired, elegant raspberry aromas unfold. As the wine evolves, it reveals slight hints of cedar wood. Beautiful structure and freshness; minerality and saltiness in the mouth. Slight notes of grapefruit zest are delicately expressed on a long and persistent finish.

Ageing potential: 10 years

Food Pairing

A scallop and citrus fruit carpaccio. A fillet of red mullet accompanied by a drizzle of olive oil and lemon juice. A seafood platter
