Tasting Notes: This wine is bursting with youth. The robe is elegant, allowing luminous sparks to shine through. The nose is fresh, with a light mineral touch. This wine gives off the intense blossom and citrus aromas. This palette of aromas comes through as flavors in the supple, rounded mouthfeel, alongside a few oaky notes. The finish is balanced, really fresh and beautifully long.
