A quite intense, brilliantly elegant, golden yellow. Intense and rich on the nose. It opens with top notes of dried fruit, almonds and hazelnuts, with grilled or toasted aromas. After several years in the bottle, the nose evolves towards rich hints of honey and pine sap. The wine is rounded and generous. On the palate it is warm and rich, with roundness dominating.
A natural partner for sweet & savoury dishes, especially enhancing cakes, with its rich, winey character as well as complementing South Asian food, and French farmhouse cheeses like Soumaintrain and Bleu de Vacqueyras.
