The Vintage 2013 : .After a long winter and a gloomy spring, the summer was warm and sunny but with intervals of violent hail storms. The harvest took place in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. The difficult weather conditions at the beginning of the year and the hail storms have considerably impacted the yields in most of the wine regions but quality is there. The white wines are tense with citrus fruit aromas and a well-shaped acidity. Aging in oak casks during 11 months.
Tasting : Pale gold color. Floral fragrances mixed with aromas of green fruit and fresh almond. Hint of vanilla. Well-crafted with an outstanding energy. Tight with a lightly creamy texture. Delicate oak note on the long and elegant finish.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with lobster, seafood, white meat and some cheeses (Reblochon, Cantal, Epoisse and Citeau).
