"With a beautiful brilliant color, this white is a real delicacy. On the nose, scents of citrus fruits and greengage plum combine with a touch of toasted almond. Lively on the attack, echoeing the aromas of the bouquet, the palate is balanced between richness and vivacity, with the addition of pretty mineral notes."
