Tasting

A beautiful golden yellow colour. On the Nose it is extremely generous and open. It is charming with notes of pear and melon. Finally on the palate, Melon and yellow grapefruit express themselves in the mouth. Beautiful acidic tension that enhances the finish. It is a round and sweet wine appearing and lively.

Food & wine pairings

This white wine from the Costières de Nîmes will go perfectly with the freshness of a Caesar salad, prawns or shrimps on the Barbecue or mussels a la plancha.
It will go perfectly with a lemon tart for dessert.

Detailed information

Vintage

This year the harvest was a little late and was delayed by about ten days compared to 2018. As everywhere else, the June heat wave and the summer drought were not unrelated to the lowest yields recorded. Fortunately, quality was not affected. Although very small, the grapes are more concentrated and by their perfect maturity.
