Tasting Notes

Aromas of ripe apples, honey and a dash of underlying oak. The palate is complex and rich, with overtones of honeycomb and butter, balanced by a quenching mineral acidity. The oak supports the wine well and the finish boasts the steeliness and austerity of a great Grand Cru Chablis.

Food Matches

Try with sauteed frogs legs with garlic butter.
