Grapes are softly pressed, then fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 17° - 18°C, after which the wine rests on fine lees at 12° - 13°C until spring, allowing a more complex and mellow structure.
Deep straw yellow with golden tinges. Distinct bouquet, sharpened by notes of orange blossom and fresh white fruit such as apple and pear. Dry and full on the palate, pleasantly bitter with notes of mugwort.
Ideal with ham and soft cheese; delicious with main dishes dressed with red sauces and white meats.
