This wine is complex but subtle, with aromas of quince, walnut, honey, ginger, acacia with a hint of linden-tree. On the palate it is very elegant with a good length. Versatile food wine pairing well with poultry in sauces, goat's cheese, blue cheese, spicy dishes and curry.

The grapes from which this wine is produced comes from three different vineyards: Le Méal”, characterized by a soil of very old fluvial-glacial alluvial deposits with a high pebble content. “Les Murets”, whose soil is clay-gravel, the red clay give the wines a full, rich character. “Chante-Alouette”, a high-lying terroir whose soil is a mixture of loess and very finely decomposed granite, it gives the wine freshness, salinity and acidity.
