Sensory profile Generous and intense to the eye, its straw yellow displays an almost playful duet of pastels and shimmering gold that heighten its effect. The aromatic impact commences with gloriously-ripe fruit that quickly yields pride of place to fragrant effusions of apricot, plum, nectarine, pear, flanked by more exotic suggestions of white-fleshed melon and veritable gusts of pineapple. More aeration delivers dried fruits and nuts, almond and cashew, and spiritous essences such as tequila and amaretto, and finally sweet spices: nutmeg and saffron. Upon entering the salon of flavours, we are enfolded in a warm, minerally embrace enlivened by tangy bursts of rich fruit. The grip is decisive, raspy even, as befits a strong-charactered wine that is born to partner with dishes that are complex, fat-rich, and ultra-sapid.


Pairings its fruit too will re-emerge on the palate when it encounters preparations that are succulent and spice-rich, even meats. It loves above all fish and vegetables au gratin, such as gratin dauphinois.
