- Tasting notes
|ABV (Alcohol By Volume)||14.5%|
The grapes are hand-picked and whole bunches are pressed. There is static settling of the lees. The wine is fermented in temperature controlled tuns, followed by raising on the less for 8 months.
|Type||Dry, complex, fruity, full-bodied, balanced|
|Food & Wine Pairing||Just right for starting a meal with California Rolls with smoked eel, an Alsatian stew or fresh goat cheese type Crottin de Chavignol.|
The colour is lemon yellow with green reflections, of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent.
The nose is marked and pleasant, with a beautiful intensity. We perceive complex, fruity dominant aromas, citrus fruits, lime, finely spiced, and ginger in the background. Airing slightly enhances the lemon fragrance which still remains timid.
The onset in the mouth is dense and full-bodied, creating a beautiful silky sensation. The alcohol support is balanced. The wine evolves in a clean and lively medium, marked by a sparkling note. The range of flavours is more varied than on the nose. Always dominated by citrus fruits and lemon, we can discern more of spices and ginger, a fine floral touch and a fine vegetal aroma marked by a trace of bitterness. The finish has a beautiful length, 8 caudalies, and a sharp liveliness. This wine is sharply balanced.
