TASTING NOTE BY VÉRONIQUE BOSS-DROUHIN
- An exquisite wine often drunk on its own as an aperitif.
- Pure and limpid color, with a faint greenish hint.
- On the nose, fresh aromas of flower and fruit (lemony flavors) and, at times, spicy notes of coriander.
- On the palate: harmonious aromas bringing character and elegance.
- The magnitude of its Grand Cru origin and the light salty notes from the Kimmeridgian soil are in evidence.
- Remarkably long and complex persistence in the aftertaste.
- Temp: 53-54°F.
- 1 to 5 years.
