2014 Off dry, similar in style to 2011: It makes a great aperitif and can match scallops, lobster, and all white meat, for example quail with grapes or turkey with a lemon and cream sauce. It also goes very well with aged hard cheese, such as Comté or Parmesan, and especially ewe’s milk cheese.
2015 A little sweeter than 2014 but with great balancing acidity: A very good aperitif which can also match sea-food such as scallops and lobster, and all white meat, for example turkey with cranberry sauce. It also goes well with aged hard ewe’s milk cheese.
2016 Just off-dry with great length it will develop complexity over time: it goes well with fish in various sauces; chicken, quail or guinea fowl or creamy risotto.
