Tasting notes
Wine of powerful and generous character. The nose has notes of lemon but also notes of butter and vanilla . The palate is fairly tensed with acidity. The wine is fat with maturity and fills the mouth with flavor. It needs time to be tasted in its peak. It may deserve to be placed in carafe two hours before.
Food and wine pairings
Perfect with fatted chicken from Bresse with a creamy sauce and mushrooms.
