yellow robe. Quince, pear fruit with tang, toasting, vanilla, grapiness combine on the nose. The attack is joli, bears soft and appealing white fruits that are tasty, peach and white plum present, a touch of cooked lime on the close. This has nice style, is a typical Crozes blanc, toot toot, an aromatic, soft wine with pretty length, is very attractive. To 2023 Dec 2018

yellow robe, legs. Mango, tropical fruits, racy bouquet with a good, fat curve, a light air of banana, also white peach. The palate has a fine, lovely finesse, offers real good pearls of freshness. This is classy, even though it comes from young vines. The flavour centres on peach. It has both a tender texture and gras. Precise, good wine. 13°. 2019-20  Oct 2015
