TASTING NOTE

appearance

Straw yellow with pale golden highlights. 

bouquet

An intense bouquet, but of particular finesse, with scents of almond
blossom, rennet apples, a faint spiciness and a hint of crusty bread.

flavor

Dry, crisp and elegant, with a very persistent rounded sensation in which
one finds a light fruity note of ripe apples, an attractive hint of yeast and
sweet almonds and a vaguely aromatic undertone that is typical of Chardonnay.
