Tasting

The colour is golden yellow with intense reflections. The nose has a botrytised character with hints of roasting, dried fig and dark chocolate.

The palate is supple. The structure is well structured and fresh. The persistence is pleasant.

Food and wine pairing

Wine which delightfully accompanies foie gras/ terrine and chutney, an aperitif, a moment of pleasure.

Tasting comment

An open and elegant nose, tinged with exoticism. The attack is wide and dense, of semi-dry spirit, endowed with a precise and underlying acidity which structures the whole and elates the end of the palate. Notes of Williams pear dominate, stretching out with noble bitters, a prelude to a future minerality.

Ideal for foie gras, offal dishes, exotic desserts
