Reviews

Bronze
" La robe brillante couleur jaune pâle aux reflets or vert s'ouvre sur un nez expressif et complexe qui associe les odeurs des fleurs blanches (acacia) à celles des agrumes et de la pomme Granny Smith. La bouche à l'attaque tendre offre une matière suave ainsi que des arômes fruités et délicatement miellés qui enrobent le palais puis persistent dans une finale équilibrée et gourmande. Beau Vouvray demi-sec. " [+]
