The wine is racked just once, before natural clarification during the course of the winter.
The following spring, the wine is lightly filtered just before bottling, and the bottles are then aged in our cellars until released for sale.

Food & Wine Pairing

As an aperitif or to accompany oven-baked or pan-fried fish, in cream sauce, red mullet, turbot, sander, lobster, crab and oriental or spiced Indian dishes.
This is a wine which goes perfectly well with all kinds of dishes and cooking styles, including white meat, veal, poultry and pheasant.

This wine has a wonderfully intense and lively colour with a nice crystalline metallic sheen over a young, fresh and alert pale green with hints of pale yellow. When rolled in the glass its legs are structured and oily.

It has a magnificent pure and sophisticated aroma which generously releases a sense of freshness, openness and perfumed, expressive, fruity and floral spontaneity with delicate hints of muscat, white peach, lemon balm, rose, hawthorn, jasmine, freesia, lime-tree and cherry blossom, lychee and pear.

One is immediately impressed by its rare elegance and aromatic charm.

On the palate it reveals all of its harmony and balance.
This is a fresh and refreshing dry wine, with a wonderful heady and rounded generosity that is combined with a remarkable sapidity, it has a full and delicious flavour that is filled with charm and sophistication.
