Overall, the vines are aged between 25 and 40 years old. The schistous identity of the Terroir brings a lot of minerality into the wine.
Tasting Notes: First, the color is yellow pale. Then, on the nose, the wine is very fresh and fruity, with subtle citrus notes. Overall, in mouth we are surprised by aromas of white flowers and juicy fruits.
Last but not least, the finish is nicely mineral.
