PGI Les Alpilles
Light yellow with a clear col. The nose is discreet but refined. Aromas of grapefruit, slightly musky. On the palate the attack is franck and the wine enjoys a beautiful roundness. He plays on notes of fennel, lime and white nectarines. It has fat and scale, the balance is there. It ends with a mineral tip that stretches on the finish with a nice length in the mouth.
