The robe is a lemon yellow with light green reflections of good intensity, the disk is bright, limpid, transparent. The wine shows youth. The nose is frank, pleasant with a beautiful intensity. One notes a dominant of fruity fragrances, citrus fruits, lemon. Airing enhances the fruity character, the citrus fruits, and shows delicate, very complex smoky, floral notes. The nose is slightly restrained but shows freshness. The onset in the mouth is moderately ample, the alcoholic base is balanced. One evolves on a strict and tonic, finely sparkling medium. The range of aromas expresses citrus fruits, lime, orgeat, sweet almond. The final presents an average length, 5 caudalies, and a frank vivacity. The structure is fresh and light. Match is with shellfish or fresh goat cheese.

Wine SpectatorThis dry version exhibits pleasant notes of lemon zest and brine, with a warm, underlying hint of earthiness. Despite crisp acidity, this has nice weight and texture, making it great as a sipper or with shellfish. Drink now through 2011. 1,700 cases imported.

Wine EnthusiastRounded and soft, with an attractive bite of fruit skin texture and lively fresh acidity. There is a touch of final minerality.
