Winemaker's note:
A beautiful golden orange color, coppery.
The first nose is somewhat discreet, but then we discover all the freshness and elegance of the vintage. A dominant of acacia, broom and candied lemon quickly enveloped by candied and roasted aromas, orange with a small final spicy and very cinnamon touch. The mouth opens with a nice volume, a little creamy, and a sweetness that quickly disappears in front of the freshness and liveliness before a finish slightly salty and on a sweet bitterness. The stewed and candied fruits (lemon), the quince jelly, the apricot skin mingle with the refreshing flavors before a light toasted and finely spiced reminder accompanied by almonds and cinnamon. A perfect balance where the sweetness is completely forgotten in favor of a beautiful freshness and a sweet bitterness. The wine is perfect for the table, from oysters or even white meats in sauce, cream.
