On perusal the full golden colour presents nuances of green which is made even more brilliant by the elegant, fine and persistent per- lage. The intense aroma releases floral notes of magnolia, jasmine, white roses and acacia as well as fruity notes of lemons, tangerines and white peaches which tantalise the nose. On the palate it is at once creamy, soft, well-balanced with a pleasant freshness and fullness of flavour. Well-structured with an enduring finale as wave after wave of balsamic notes contribute to making it complex, rich and persistent. A perfect wine for the aperitif paired with appetizers or after the meal with desserts, fruit tarts and light pastries.

Serve at 8/10 °C.
