It has a pale golden hue and exudes a complex aromatic bouquet. Notes of grilled hazelnut, flint stone, butter, citrus fruit and while fruit herald a palate which is both well-rounded and fresh. Balanced by wonderful acidity and delicate notes of citrus fruit, it pairs beautifully with iodised dishes for example.
