Wine: Bordeaux Le Ruisseau
Alcoholic strength: 13% vol.

Viticulture: The plot of this estate has been organically grown since the 2010 harvest. Herbicides have been replaced by plowing the land.
The vines are protected with preventive and natural methods, with the use of minerals such as copper and sulfur. This helps to preserve the biodiversity of the vineyard.
The company pays particular attention to all “green pruning” operations, such as the thinning and thinning of the leaves, which are performed manually. The shoots are carefully thinned to favor the homogeneous distribution and correct aeration of the bunches.

Tasting Notes
Upon examination in the glass, the sample is crystalline, of an intense straw yellow color with golden reflections, quite consistent.
The olfactory examination is intense, with a variegated bouquet of scents. The sample opens with notes of yellow wildflowers, followed by fruity notes reminiscent of yellow-fleshed fruits such as peach and apple, aromas of exotic fruit such as mango and papaya. A light citrus note completes the range of scents.
The sip is very fresh, flavor and acidity invite new sips. Sample with a very persistent aftertaste of exotic fruit.
It is recommended in combination with a swordfish carpaccio.
