Description: This white wine is grown on ice-age morainic soils. With its pale-green colour, it has unmistakably intense scents of gooseberries, blackcurrants, elder, lilac and grass. Its nose has a very fruity and intense flavour, while the taste is dry with a fine interplay of acids.
Vinification: Fermentation takes place in steel barrels at a controlled temperature of 14°C. Maturation in the barrel on the fine lees produces a refined taste and aroma.
Recommended with: Ideal with asparagus and light fish dishes
