About the wine: Dry white wines that have a bit of somethin’ something'. Yes, you never heard of this region or producer but its probably one of South-West best white wine! Aged in barrel on the lees. Low sulphur.
Taste like: The wine is dry, yet refreshing. Appearance is straw-yellow, with intense aromas of acacia and candied citrus-fruit aromas, with notes of lime. It's floral and also spicy. It begins very lively on the palate then fills the mouth with fullness and structure. All the elements blend into a rich, harmonious whole. Medium body white, the finish leaves a delightful, slightly acidic sensation characteristic of Petit Manseng with notes of fresh lime.
When to drink: Drink now or in the next 3-4 years after vintage.
Service: 12 degrees C.
Food match: Think fish in sauce or roasted chicken. Pairs with seafood, poultry, and firm sheep’s milk cheeses such as the neighboring Ossau-Iraty in the Basque Country.
