Tasting

The color is pale yellow with golden reflections of good intensity. The disc is
bright, limpid and transparent. The wine presents youth.

The nose is frank, pleasant, of good intensity. Dominated by candied citrus,
lemon, fine vegetal and a buttery register. Airing amplifies these smells and
reveals the white flowers, as well as a touch of fresh mushrooms. The nose,
already accessible, presents a beautiful varietal definition of very ripe grapes.

The attack on the palate is slender, the alcoholic support balanced. We evolve
on an incisive, pearly medium, where we find the range of aromas of the nose.
White flowers, citrus fruits, lemon, fine vegetal, butter and an ashy register. We
perceive a fine bitterness. The finish has good length, 8-9 caudalies, as well as
frank liveliness and lingering bitterness.

The balance is easily digestible in the
vein of this beautiful grape variety. The bitters provide structure and the range
of aromas is pleasant and complex.
