Tasting notes :
Beautifully pale salmon colour, bone dry, rich and rounded creamy palate with a good structure and a bite of acidity, a touch of vinous warmth on finish and a little grip too.
On its own, as an aperitif, excellent with cooked seafood, duck à l'orange! Guinea fowl with citrus fruits, sweet-sour dishes, Thai or other spicy food, goat cheese, also strong flavoured cheeses: e.g.? wensleydale, farmhouse cheddar.
Drinkable now, can be kept 3 years.
Recommended serving temperature: 8°C
