The wine’s long maturation in oak barrels helps achieve its wonderful deep, limpid golden colour. Its very intense nose contains a range of aromas: cooked apple, curry, saffron and walnut. Its mouthfeel has a lively, powerful and well-formed attack. The mouth feel confirms the aromas in the nose, providing a remarkable range of flavours: fresh walnut, curry, green apple, dried fruit and saffron. A grandiose finish.
This dry, powerful wine ages wonderfully well. It can also be enjoyed at any moment, from the appetizers to the dessert: Comté cheese, gougères (baked savoury choux pastry made of choux dough mixed with cheese) and mushrooms on toast, snails, crayfish, poultry, white meat and fish.
For fine dining, it is also an excellent choice to serve with lobster and white truffles. It is also wonderful for making cream sauces.
