Eye
ale golden yellow in colour with slight greenish glints. Bright, luminous and limpid.

The nose
shows instantly both maturity and freshness in a festival of flowers and fruit. The floral notes of menthol, acacias and citronella mingle with grapefruit, butterscotch and freshly-baked buns…

Taste
is powerful with pretty, harmonious mellowness, perfectly supported by its frank, yet unagressive liveliness. The long finish prolongs the pleasure with a pronounced mineral presence enhanced by a delicate hint of wood.

Serving temperature:
10 to 12° as an aperitif or for the pleasure of tasting,
12 to 14° served with a meal.
