The Chateau Lagrezette has allowed Alain Dominique Perrin to combine his two passions: a love of beauty and the creation of exceptional products.The consultant oenologist is the famed Michel Rolland.
This exceptional wine is a subtle blend of Viognier and Chardonnay, bringing charm to this very elegant wine.
Nose: aromas of white flowers, stone fruits, quince and pineapple.
Taste: a perfect balance, fullness, suppleness, elegance, and a long finish with a long aromatic persistence.
Fantastic as an aperitif, with salads, first dishes and fishes.
