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 colour. Intense aromas of citrus fruit mixed with oyster shell scents and iodine notes. Elegant with good volume and a pure texture. Well-shaped minerality. Persistent mouth coating finish.
Food pairing : Pâté, lobsters and poultry as well as many goat cheeses.
