Tasting notes

Commented by Olivier Poussier:

Color : Beautiful light ruby ​​color.

Nose : The nose reveals itself with greed, the red fruits are scintillating, raspberry and morello cherry. The whole is fresh and underlined by peppery notes.

Palate : The palate is distinguished by a slightly extracted touch. A well-made wine with a pulpy and velvety heart. It is a classic Fleurie, more on fruit and finesse than on maturity and density. It is a wine of education and pleasure combining fruit and supple texture. The wine has a delicate tannin structure that provides the necessary relief.

Service temperature : 57°F
