Description:
After a cool and rainy winter and a frost episode in April, the warm and dry weather in spring was perfect for the flowering. In July and August the weather was more demanding but it became fine again early September with a true indian summer which enabled a perfect maturation for the grapes. The harvest took place mid september under a bright sunshine. The white wines develop very pure zesty aromas mixed with floral fragrances.

Tasting : Pale gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with refreshing aromas of citrus fruit (grapefruit) mixed with fresh honey enhanced by a hint of minerality. Well-structured and tense. Well-integrated acidity and beautiful minerality. Energetic aftertaste.
