Wine of great finesse, its bouquet is complex: mineral fragrances, pear, spices. The attack is fresh and mineral on the palate, structured with a fine length in the mouth. A wine of great class to savour within a few years. Should be drunk between between 2016 and 2021. Serving temperature12-14°C Food and wine combination: Ideal with foie gras, seafood such as lobster, crayfish, crab but also poultry and veal cooked in white sauce and blue cheese.

Wine SpectatorThis is well-marked by new oak, with plenty of stuffing underneath. Notes of lime, white flowers, apple, sweet spice and petrol ride a wave of vibrant acidity as this stays linear and defined through the long finish. The lime and mineral accents are enhanced by spice details in the aftertaste. Best from 2017 through 2028. 62 cases imported.
