Cuvée Palombe 2018

This cuvée is the result of a blend of old gnarled ceps from Sémillon , Sauvignon Blanc and Gris planted on clay-limestone soil.

Tasting Notes : The first nose is distinguished by fine toasted notes, without excess. Airing reveals notes of gingerbread. The palate is round and smooth, balanced by a fine acidity. The finish is marked by notes of tropical fruits and a good persistence.
