Tasting notes

This wine has a yellow colour with green tints. The nose is intense, fresh and elegant, offering aromas of peach, mirabelle plums and broom blossom. After some time in the glass, you notice the minerality given to it by the limestone soil.
On the palate, it is elegant, unctuous and fresh with a lovely balance which lasts for some time and is very pleasant.

Food and wine pairings

It goes well with sea bream, sea urchin or simply with some grilled sea bass drizzled with some Trevallon olive oil
