Tasting Notes
Appearance: 

Gold with green tints, brilliant and clear.

Aroma: 

Elegant, fairly reticent, very mineral with flowery, vegetal undertones enlivened with a honey note.

Palate: 

A fine, pure wine, very fat. The nature of the "terroir" favours the harmonious development of the aromas of he grapes, with nuances of hazelnuts and grilled almonds. A rich, luscious wine.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The 2017 vintage, a very satisfactory harvest. Not only because the volumes will allow to supply the markets but also because the wines already offer the desire to discover this very elegant vintage. The Chardonnay grapes for the white wines were picked at peak ripeness, wine aging is on process and promises wines with a very nice balance.
