The Vintage 2014 : After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding but it became fine again early September with a true Indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid September under a bright sunshine. The white wines develop very pure zesty aromas mixed with floral fragrances.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Notes of lime blossom mixed with zesty citrus fruit. Subtle minerality. Well-structured. Well-shaped minerality. Price with a very pure fruit Well-crafted acidity. Refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Pâté, fish, charcuterie, and many goat cheeses.
