sensory characteristic


Bright yellow in colour with green hues.


A complex and expressive nose of white flowers, underlined by some notes of lime.


The palate is ample, well-balanced with aromatic notes of citrus fruits and honeysuckle. A mineral and long finish.

At the sea side, it will be perfect with a plate of shellfish (lobster, scallops) steamed or poached or noble fish just fried, grilled or steamed. Cheeses: Goat cheese, Beaufort Comté, Emmental...
