Bright with a beautiful straw color.
It is very expressive with aromas of exotic fruits, such as pineapple, candied fruit and honey. These aromas are very characteristic of the Petit Manseng grape, which is a rare variety from the South-west of France.

Food and wine matching
2008 Dry with evolved flavours in the style of a natural wine: it accompanies tapas perfectly or risotto with truffles 2009 Off-dry with a richness and roundness on the palate: it makes a very good aperitif or can go with gently spicy dishes, any white meats or ewe’s milk cheese 2010 Dry with an elegance on the palate and developing a nuttiness with bottle-age: ideal with fish in various sauces or roast chicken 2011 Off-dry, similar in style to the 2009 : great as an aperitif; especially good with lobster or scallops 2012 Medium-dry, can be enjoyed as an aperitif but also matches, for example, roast goose with apples 2013 A medium-dry vintage with great balancing acidity, which leads through to a final dry finish: it is perfect when there is a touch of sweetness in the dish, for instance turkey with redcurrant jelly, duck cooked with apple or chicken and mango salad.
