Vinification:
After gentle pressing of the grapes, the must is cryo-settled, then ferments in 225l oak barrels. The wine rests on the lees until the following May, with frequent bâttonage to keep the lees in suspension.

Sensory profile:
A superbly-structured white wine, with good alcoholic warmth. A gold-flecked yellow, it releases scents of ripe apple and banana. The full-bodied palate shows a fine balance between weight and alcohol, while it finishes with an elegant hint of vanilla, making at a real pleasure to drink.

Serving suggestions:
The perfect partner to full-flavoured first courses, all lighter meats, and baked fish. Enjoy at 14°C.
