The must stays in stainless steel to ferment slowly at a very low, controlled temperature. The wine is moved to French barriques where it rests with the skins for twelve months with frequent "battonage". Cuvée is created beforethe bottling process.
Brilliant deep straw yellow, crystalline and consistent. Full fragrance, delicate with fruits and floral tones over soft boisé notes. Rich and warm, elegantly structured, it offers to the palate an excellent long flavour which, after lingering, evolves into lightly toasted fruit and dried flowery notes.
This wine can be savored by itself because of its complex structure; ideal for fish dishes, ripe cheeses, vegetable flans and lightly prepared white meats.
