The Vintage 2015 : After a cold winter and a mild spring, the weather conditions in summer (with important differences of temperature between day and night from August onwards) were ideal and enabled a perfect maturation of the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The white wines develop aromas of exotic fruit mixed with floral fragrances. Aging in oak casks (demi-muids) during 9 months.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with aromas of exotic fruit and fresh honey on a hint of minerality. Well-structured, taut and precise.Well integrated minerality. Refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Charcuteries, sea-food, fish, snails as well as some goat cheeses.
