TASTING NOTES

Appearance: A light rose coloured with a beautiful appearance, clear and bright.

Nose: The nose is elegant and suave, suggesting aromatic complexity of blackcurrant, rose, iris, fresh almond and british candy.

Second nose: Upon aeration, a note of red fruits (blackcurrant, currant, orange blossom)

Palate: Fresh and wiry attack with red fruits aromas (cherry, currant) on a floral spirit (peony, rose). Hint of spices.

Mid palate: Crisp and mineral.

Fresh wine with a great aromatic persistence.

 

It is at its best when drunk with starters cooked out of meat, liver and pork meat dishes. His wedding with white meat is very pleasant.

It is presented in transparent bottles. It should be served at a temperature of 8-10°C.
