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. Aging in oak casks (demi-muids) during 11 months.
Tasting : Pale gold color. Intense aromas of citrus fruit mixed with smoky notes. Iodine character. Well-balanced, concentrated and precise. Well-integrated minerality. Salty notes. Refreshing aftertaste with a zesty finish.
Food pairing : Foie gras, shellfish, fish, white meat as well as some goat cheeses.
