The Vintage 2010 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by cold and rainy intervals which early September gave way to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. The white wines are tense with a tight texture underlined by a mineral overlay and an outstanding acidity.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Aromas of citrus fruit and honey on a beautiful minerality. Well-structured. Well-integrated minerality. Tense and linear. Well-shaped acidity. Refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Pâté, fish, charcuterie, and many goat cheeses.
