Tasting Notes :Brilliant, with a fairly clear pale yellow with obvious green reflections, it has a complex bouquet, impenetrable yet delicate with notes initially reminiscent of jasmine and lime flowers, followed by a suggestion of various fruits including green apples, pears and grapefruit. Balanced, dry and fragrant to the palate thanks to the right level of acidity that underlines the perception of fruits and citrus. A pleasantly persistent aftertaste that is slightly bitter.
