CHARACTER AND STYLE
Behind its pretty pale gold dress with some crystal green reflects, the nose of this Chablis seduces by its fineness and its aromatic and elegant personality. On the palate we feel the fresh notes of citrus and lime. Roundness and finesse, elegance and persistence on the palate make it at once a greedy and elegant bottle, but also with a lively and fresh wine. It is a true wine of Chablis distinguished and well born.

This Chablis is recommended to accompany all shellfishes and fishes. This is obviously an excellent aperitif. It will successfully accompany a slice of bread with goat cheese or a terrine of fish.
