The wine has an elegant golden yellow color with amber reflections. The smell is very expressive, with notes of dried and ripe fruit. In the mouth you can taste the great class of its perlage and structure, with hints of walnuts, cream, and pastry. It goes particularly well with soft and mature French cheeses or also with white fish dishes.
