The wine

Maturing
Aged on the lees for 6-8 months with regular bâtonnage (stirring) before bottling in june.
Varietals
Sauvignon blanc : 100%

Tasting notes
Yellow straw colour. The nose has seductive aromas of crystallised citrus, juicy pear, ripe apricot and blackcurrant buds. Round and well balanced on the palate thanks to its slightly acid flavour. Long aftertaste displaying fresh mint notes.
Food pairing
Serve as an accompaniment to aperitifs or associated with scallops, fishes in sauce, roasted white meats and ripened goat's cheese.
