Appearance: This wine has a pure and youthful colour, brimming with life and a wonderful silvery crystalline sheen over a nice fresh bright yellow and the pale greens of pistachio, lime tree with some hints of pale yellow in its smooth legs. Aroma: The bouquet is young, daring and filled with a wonderfully pure juvenile, spontaneous and aromatic expression, it is full-fruited with a subtle hints of Muscat, elderflower, white peach, lemon balm, grapefruit, lime, hawthorn, spring jasmine, lime tree cherry and pear blossom. The bouquet is deliciously aromatic and dashing. Mouth Feel: On the palate this is a bright, vigorous dry wine with a wonderful sense of refinement and elegance, it has a lively tactile freshness which explodes inside the mouth with pleasant precise, frank and balanced flavours. Food Pairing: This is an ideal refreshing wine which can be served right away, or in two years to get the most of its aromatic and refreshing charm. An ideal wine for aperitifs, oysters, shellfish, seafood, raw fish, sushi or marinated, Carpaccio of langoustines, scallops, grilled fish in light or slightly creamy sauces. Ideal with lightly spiced oriental, Indian, Moroccan, Mexican dishes.
