Tasting advices

Tasting
Very pretty pale yellow colour with bright green reflections. The nose is full of freshness, with floral notes (hawthorn, vine flower) and fruity gourmet aromas of citrus (lime), peach and sweet spices. On the palate, a beautiful balance that combines freshness and roundness, minerality and fruity notes with a long aromatic and sapid finish.
Service
With delicate or spicy (saffron) dishes, grilled fish, bouillabaisse.
