"The [color is] pale yellow with green reflections, the powerful nose opens on very fresh notes where the aromas of white fruits of butter and citrus fruits accompany the mineral note. In the mouth, the freshness and acidity of this wine is balanced by its fat and richness. The aromatic persistence is long and very complex. The aromas of wood are discrete and highlight its minerality." - Notes from the Producer
