Wine bright yellow.
Very clean, sensible, well-balanced wine with dense, silky texture and fresh, juicy notes of citrus - lemon and lime. Long aftertaste stored light, refreshing hints of minerals.
The aroma of the wine much more complicated than previous vintages. Gorgeous shades of white peach, citrus peel accompany tone, menthol, land and silicon.
Wine perfectly combined with fish, seafood, foie gras and soft cheeses from goat's milk.
