The Vintage 2006 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. However, the sun appeared at the end of August and continued throughout September. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced beautiful white wines with fantastic acidity.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Aromas of citrus fruit mixed with vanilla and enhanced by a delicate minerality. Well-balanced, well-structured and generous. Well-integrated acidity with and long finish.
Food pairing : Charcuteries, sea-food, fish, snails as well as some goat cheeses.
