Sauvignon Blanc CRU Selection L

Wine description

An intense golden colour invites you to discover rich aromas and a well-developed body. Slow ageing in the cask draws out complex notes ranging from sage to paprika, from wild flowers to tobacco and leather: all rounded off in a long aftertaste.

With food

Goes well with delicate first courses, fish and shellfish, seasoned goat cheeses and cream cheese.

Cru Selection

Cru Selection wines have a very rich colour, an extraordinary beautiful body, which reflects the characteristic mineral note. These non-filtered wines are also extremely persistent.
