Gault&Millau's review
Still bearing marks of an ageing of six month in barrel, this wine presents a vinous structure and reveals zesty and spicy flavours on the palate. The finish shows nice bitter notes and a minerality that would go well with seafood, such as crab with mayonnaise.

Gault&Millau's review
This cuvée presents a nice balance between the power of the Pinot Noir and the lemony freshness of the Chardonnay. It develops an interesting minerality on the palate. The slightly too pronounced dosage will fade in a match with sweet and sour Asian cuisine.

Gault&Millau's review
This wine has developed smoky and spicy notes over the years. However, the palate is still fresh and sapid. The finish is punctuated by zesty and mineral notes. It could be served at the end of a meal with a 24-month-old Parmesan cheese.
