A bright, eye-catching pale-yellow colour with silver flashes. The nose shows a slightly oxidative characteristic, this isn’t a fault in the wine, this was purposeful. This is followed by touches of sweet almond, and peaches as well as Mirabelle plums. The palate reveals a well-integrated acidity, then led by the peachy style contributed by the Auxerrois. The sweet almond aromas find their echo on the palate. A vivacious streak of acidity expands gradually on the palate, resulting in an elegant finish.

Intense yellow with silvery notes. The nose is pure with floral notes, accompanied by aromas of apricots and mirabelles. The palate is very elegant with good structure and great persistence. A variety of citrus fruit notes enrich the aromatic palette.
