  • Tasting Notes

    • A brilliant pale greenish-yellow color. The very nice expressive nose has white flower scents. The attack is bold and generous. This wine, which is balanced on the palate, has good volume and quite exceptional long-lasting scents and tastes for a Bourgogne blanc. This is a good value wine that can be enjoyed from now on.
