Producer Tasting Notes

It has a beautiful bright pale yellow colour. The nose is very expressive with fresh notes of yellow flower, then fresh fruits such as apricot ...The palate, dynamic on the attack, is then rich and smooth, with good volume, a superb texture and a long finish. This wine presents a fantastic balance with a beautiful acid structure and a very nice touch on the palate.
