Its colour, a crystalline pale gold. The aromatic palette is as rich as it is wide - peaches, apricots and grapefruit evolve over time into fresh almond, hazelnut, honey, quince and toast. Its fullness balances natural minerality with the fleshy opulence that is earned by a long elevage in oak barrels. The finish is mineral, chalky and bright.
This wine would work wonderfully with goat cheeses, Époisses, Comté, Camembert and Roquefort.
