Tasting notes

    A pale straw robe with light green highlights. Refreshing with flavours of yellow fruits. Vibrant fine bubbles, impressive length and the amazing freshness due to the Chenin’s palate-cleansing acidity. A tagy citrus (lime) finish.

Food pairing

    Excellent aperitif and festive wines, one can also make the transition to the table… an appealing accompaniment to shellfish and simple pasta dishes (drowned in pesto)!
