Pretty pale-pink colour, with soft undertones. Fresh and very aromatic nose, this wine has a delicate bouquet with notes of red fruit, flowers and citrus fruit. Nice balance between sweetness and acidity in the mouth. There are notes of fresh fruit, and great length. This 2016 wine is fresh and balanced, a beautiful expression of this beautiful vintage with lots of fruit!

Reviews and Awards

-
Très jolie robe rose pastel avec des reflets corail et une belle intensité. Le nez est puissant et épicé (safran) avec des arômes de petits fruits rouges (cerise, framboise). Le nez est agréable et très complexe.
