Youthful colour, lively, bright, crystal-clear, fresh pale green with silver hints and elegant silkiness.
Fresh, open bouquet, a frank and expressively aromatic perfume of fruit and flowers, cardamom, lemon balm, rose, jasmine, freesia, lime and cherry blossom, lychee, pear, cleanly defined and subtly spicy.
Dry on the palate, the wine is fresh and easy to enjoy, yet pleasantly rich and full of flavour, with an elegantly aromatic aftertaste. Nicely balanced in the mouth, it has a refreshing character and generous structure that gives it charm.
A wine to drink now and over the next 3 years, served at 8 degrees C on its own, or with fish (baked, pan fried or in cream sauce), red mullet, turbot, pike-perch, lobster, crab and dishes with Oriental and Indian spices.
