  • Appearance: A luminous appearance with soft, coppery shimmers and a sustained salmon pink hue. A highly alluring ensemble with a lustrous, elegant sparkle.

    Aroma: A refreshing yet sultry sensory experience of citrus peel and red and black berry jelly, with the exquisite sensation of a rich and complex aromatic range (blackcurrants, blackberries and blueberries). Gorgeously refined and mature olfactory notes bring out the inimitable fragrances of sweet spices and candied violets.

    Appearance: A luminous appearance with soft, coppery shimmers and a sustained salmon pink hue. A highly alluring ensemble with a lustrous, elegant sparkle.

    Aroma: A refreshing yet sultry sensory experience of citrus peel and red and black berry jelly, with the exquisite sensation of a rich and complex aromatic range (blackcurrants, blackberries and blueberries). Gorgeously refined and mature olfactory notes bring out the inimitable fragrances of sweet spices and candied violets.

    Palate: A distinctive mouthfeel arising from a measured strength which is simultaneously delicate and charming, with flavours developing in perfect harmony (panettone, candied clementines and ginger). A delicate character in the mouth revealing a chalky edge and persistent finish of citron zest.

    Tasting: This highly sophisticated wine presents its personality with wonderful delicacy of texture and flavour. An aromatic charm with an unusual mineral quality: pair with poached lobster, tartare of sakura leaf, tomato and rhubarb. Serve at 11/12°C.
