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.

Deeply coloured, with silvery flourishes. On the nose there are subtle hints of lemon and lime, enhanced by notes of white flowers. The palate is firmly structured with a well-integrated acidity endowing the wine with good length. Finally, a multi-layered finish with discreet touches of citrus fruits including lemon.
