The Vintage 2014 : 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. 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. Aging in oak casks during 13 months.
Tasting : Pale gold color. Floral fragrances mixed with aromas of white pear and hazelnut. Hint of vanilla. Well-crafted with a fine richness. Detailed texture. Delicate oak note. Long and elegant finish.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with lobster, seafood, white meat and some cheeses (Reblochon, Cantal, Epoisse and Citeau).
