TASTING NOTES: pale yellow with a green light. the perlage is abundant and live a fine mousse which
stays at the top of the glass. Elegant nose, fine, fresh nuts, subtle vanilla aromas which introduce fresh
citrus fruits like grapefruit and lime. the mouth smooth at the beginning lives quickly the place to the lively
freshness typical of the chardonnay grape. The end on white flowers has a great salinity which comes from
the chalk, makes remember the purity of the origin of the terroir.
