The blend of this white wine highlights its aromatic structure but also brings forth a grilled and elegant woodiness that one senses from the first nose. On the mouth, there are beautiful accents of citrus and white fruits, backed by a touch of freshness and acidity. Even the finish, which is fatty and jovial, reinforces the elegance and harmony of this cuvee, which is very representative of the appellation. It does wonders at the table with poached oysters or cheeses sprinkled with parsley.
