Tasting Notes
Upon visual examination, in the glass, the sample is crystalline, with an intense straw yellow color and good consistency.
The nose expresses all its excellent quality and aromatic variety. Complex in its bouquet of scents, the scent of mineral notes, the freshness of white wild flowers and the hints of yellow-fleshed fruits are striking. The finish is balsamic, but closes with a citrus note.
The sip is compact, precise, silky. Freshness and flavor come together, inviting you to take a new sip. Persistent, it gives a savory trail and a balsamic aftertaste.
It is recommended in combination with a guinea fowl roll.
