78% Sauvignon, 20% Sémillon, 2% Muscadelle
A pale yellow color and an expressive nose of citrus, white flowers and exotic fruits (pineapple).
The palate is balanced, fruity and freshness, as well as smoke and mineral notes. Fat and roundness provided by Semillon and barrel aging and a nice tangy length.
