White wine with light golden nuance, still appearing rather youthful, thanks to a green hue. The nose is very floral and grapey, displaying hints of fresh grass, herbal notes, hint of yellow fruit and sweet grapes. Really nice palate there, quite light-weight, but with good freshness. It is a sweet wine, but not extremely sweet, not what people would call dessert wine, rather on the semi-sweet level. In my humble opinion rather a wine to start off the meal, as a nice aperitif style with foie gras, or whatever in that direction. So very nice, youthful, primary fruit; with some fresh pear, grapes, hints of honey, well balanced sweetness. Still bright and youthful freshness, with a quiet long finish. Attractive.
