WINEMAKER NOTES

Serve between 10 and 12 degrees Celsius. Cellar for up to 5 years.

TASTING NOTES

This wine has a beautiful, pale yellow color with greenish hues. It is intense on the nose, with a strong aroma of toasted bread and freshly ground coffee, while still leaving room for underlying hints of citrus and apple. A well-structured, strong and rich wine to the palate, it has a pleasant, smooth finish with notes of fruit and roast-coffee and a subtle touch of brioche.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS

Ideal with shellfish, hearty pasta dishes with seafood or cream sauce as well as light veal or poultry dishes and pies or tureens.
