Eye
Pale gold with greenish glints. Bright, luminous and limpid.

The nose
is rich and ripe, firstly full of flowers then going on to reveal its fruity aromas with sweet, suave scents.

Taste
is very powerful with a pronounced minerally character that enhances the fruit and fine vegetal flavours. Its mellowness harmonizes perfectly with its vivacity on a solid structure that illustrates perfectly the special nature of the wine.

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