VertdeVin - - Front Page -

The nose is fruity, gour­mand and of­fers a fine sen­sa­tion of sweet­ness. it re­veals notes of lemon, ripe pink grape­fruit and fine notes of cle­men­tine com­bined with touches of ex­otic fruits (quenette, pas­sion fruit), touches of min­er­al­ity as well as a (very) dis­creet hint of zest and an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of toasted oak. The palate is fruity, fresh, well de­fined, min­eral and of­fers a fine acid frame, a nice round­ness as well as suavity. In the mouth this wine ex­presses notes of ripe lemon, cle­men­tine and fine touches of grape­fruit com­bined with touches of pas­sion fruit, quenette as well as a dis­creet hint of ly­chee, pear, slight hints of flint and an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of toasted oak. Good length. The fin­ish is a bit suave.
