" La robe brillante et cristaline couleur jaune clair aux reflets or s'ouvre sur un nez expressif qui associe les odeurs des fleurs à celles des fruits blancs (poire, pomme). La bouche à l'attaque légère et fraîche offre un caractère racé, de la tonicité de l'élégance, un superbe équilibre sur la nervosité, du "peps", ainsi que des arômes fruités (agrumes, pamplemousse) qui persistent dans une finale croquante, vivante et longue. Très beau Saumur blanc." [+]
