Golden yellow with lemon and green hues.
The nose is fine, complex and expressive, first releasing bottle ageing notes, with sea water, eucalyptus and white fruit reminiscent of the Albario grape in the background. A toasted bread and almond kernel character.
On the mouth it is broad, tasty and fresh. The typical Albario notes are present once more in a pleasant and crisp aftertaste.

Here we find all the signs of a great terroir southeast exposure, plots of mid-hills and high hills (360-410 m) particularly poor and broken, very draining soil and rock thin and flush ... yields naturally limited (less than 35 hl / ha). Slopes require only manual work. A cup of driving stakes (as in Cote Rotie example) responds to strong sun exposure. The granite stones, flush, play a crucial role here: the heat accumulated by the rocks exposed to the sun is returned in the evening to reach a good maturity, slow and deep, combining richness, freshness and silky tannins.
The roble intense, with beautiful purple violet hues....
