Winemaker`s notes:

It displays deeper golden colour with slightly amber hues. Quite intense, aromatic on the nose showing maturity, complexity and finesse. Maturity notes such as gingerbread, honey and a bit of butter are working hand in hand with youthful, primary notes such as lemon, oranges and white flowers. There is a certain freshness and lift on the nose. Dry on the palate, medium to full bodied with acidities being on the higher side. The oily texture also brings some phenolic quality. There is a nice complexity and intensity giving a mouthful wine with a nice tension and salinity. With a long, tasty finish.

Food matching:

Fish with creamy sauces, grilled Saint-Jacques, mushroom risotto, pasta with rich sauces and many, many other, mainly warm dishes.

Aging potential:

Ready to drink now (2020), will be best from 2020 to 2026.
