Sensory profile A fairly intense straw-yellow, vibrant and luminous, greets the eye. This vivacious appearance faithfully presages an ultra-fragrant succession of wild herbs and garden vegetables on the nose, in particular sage, rosemary, thyme, and marjoram; these slowly yield to sweeter notes of lemon verbena, basil, and elderflower blossom, creating an aromatic verticality that is impressively elegant. Further development of the bouquet brings to the fore impressions of crisp citrus and fresh fruit, which meld together to heighten and enrich the wine’s aromatic character. The palate opens to a vigorous minerality flanked by a luscious mosaic of peach, apricot, cherry plum, and bell pepper. Overall, this wine superbly embodies the intensity, well-calibrated balance, and near-endless length classic to a superb growing year.


Pairings Very perfumed and spicy dishes will match this Sauvignon perfectly.
