Vineyards: Fleury-la-Rivière, Damery & Mardeuil
Winemaking: Vinification and ageing in large oak vats
Ageing on lees: +40 months
Note: Available in bottles with various labels
Eye : A luminescent and bright yellow with subtle greenish reflections. In the glass the elegant perlage releases a fine, sustainable chain of bubbles.
Nose : A fine and elegant bouquet with aromas of white fruits, subtle spicy notes (gingerbread), a hint of orange zest and a gentle mineral note.
Palate : The palate notices pure tones and elegance. Beautiful harmony and pleasant maturity. Seductive aromas of white fruits and citrus fruits (green lemon) together with gentle spicy accents. In the long-lasting final the aromas of dried herbs merge with wonderful freshness.
Conclusion : A very harmonic wine of great character.
