This wine combines a number of aromas to form a complex, soft, mellow bouquet. These include hazelnut and roasted almonds, smoky notes and floral notes such as heather.
These aromas are also present on the palate, supported by a full, balanced structure that offers a delightful freshness.
Fresh and well structured, this wine may be served with a wide range of dishes: fish, especially in a sauce, white meat, cheese or even foie gras.
