This pale gold wine, with its initial aroma of honey, is reminiscent of lemons and limes with hints of creaminess. It develops a buttery and roasted hazelnut bouquet with hints of nougat, marzipan and white chocolate. Enjoyable with all fine food.

Tasting notes: Clear & bright, pale gold with pronounced green hue. Lime, crushed lemongrass & cream on the nose. Very fresh with hints of toast, honey & roasted nuts as well as nougat & marizpan. Fresh on the palate with citrusy and tropical fruit flavours followed by a rich creaminess & concentrated fruit finish. Palate also shows a pronounced chalkiness & minerality making it ideal for seafood.

Soil Type: Alluvial soil with clay subsoil.

Vinification: 100% barrel fermented in heavy toasted 300 litre Allier barrels. After alcoholic fermentation, the wine went through malo-lactic fermentation in barrique and was in contact with the fine lees for 12 months. For the first eight months Batonnage takes place twice a month, thereafter once a month.
