COLOR: Golden straw yellow and very fine edging. The hue reveals the high percentage of Chardonnay and the exclusive use of the first press. The fineness of the edging is due to a noble raw material, a perfectly controlled, fresh and constant cellar temperature, and a very long refinement in the bottle.
NOSE: The first aromas reveal the citrus fruits of Chardonnay: lime, grapefruit. Then the aromas of red fruits appear: currant, raspberry, morello cherry, characteristics of Pinot Noir. Making it open again in the glass, the link of candied fruit, and pineapple.
TASTE: The attack is lively thanks to the low dosage that respects the authenticity of the wine. The nose is confirmed with the first flavors of citrus, almonds, toast ... but also currant jelly and black fruits such as cherry, fig or blackberry.
In its evolution, in its aeration, in its heating, it reveals slightly plum and pear flavors. The palate is full without being heavy, long enough, leaving a very clear finish.
