Sensory profile A vibrant, gold-shot straw-yellow beguiles the gaze, and the imagination takes flight, inspired by impressions of pastel yellow that conjure up blossoming meadows kissed by the sun. The nose is immediately rich and forward, with initial offerings of delicate hints of roasted corn and hazelnut crème, which slowly yield to more seductive essences of sun-dried apricot and pear preserves, candied fruit and almond paste, backgrounded by subtle notes of spice. Expanding exponentially in the glass, the bouquet unleashes cascading waves of aroma-laden blossoms. The palate is full-fruited, lengthy and intense, with a heady, spiritous current lifting the fruit high in the mouth, then infusing the finish with appealing notes of fresh-mown hay and bitterish almond. Along the way, incisive mineral effusions, laterally bolstering succulent fruit, contribute to further improve the balance.


Pairings This expressive, intense wine partners brilliantly with medium-bodied dishes of a certain aromatic character, in particular mountain cheeses and vegetable-sauced, grain-based first courses. It is heavenly with baked fish!
