A brilliant robe with a beautiful yellow–gold colour. On the nose, aromas of white flowers and citrus fruits develop. The palate is fresh, round and delicate. Its aromatic complexity will appeal to delicate palates.
Works perfectly with sea fish and shellfish, as well as freshwater fish, a delicious accompaniment to both spiny lobster and pike Dijon-style. A pleasant surprise with foie gras, and cheeky with a mild cheese.
Serve at 12 to 14°C
