Tasting Notes Beautiful color, pale yellow, green hints.
The nose is intense. On the lily, the rose and aromas of muscats grapes. The finish is slightly pastry, orange blossom. Very great aromatic complexity.
On the palate, the wine is well-balanced, fresh and rich. The volume is present, ample and round. It is a powerful wine.

Winemaking After directly pressing the whole grapes the juice is transfered to stainless tanks. The must is then put in oak barrels by gravity and naturally starts the alcoholic fermentation. The aging occurs on the lees for 15 months (25% new oak).
