All of the work in the vineyard is carried out with quality in mind but not at the expense of the environment which their take great to protect. Using "Méthode Raisonnée" to ensure only the very minimum of treatments are used.

Tasting Note: An elegant golden colour. Powerful, this wine develops a great aromatic complexity of white and candied fruits. This complexity extends into a fleshy palate, spicy and harmonious.
