White: this wine is golden, speckled with green, and the gold deepens with age. It is reddish with superb aromas of hedge flowers (acacia, may, honeysuckle, and a very delicate elderflower) as well as violet, lemon, white peach or flint. Time brings out honey, quince and dried fruit. Indeed, this wine is full of fruits, which in the mouth are lively and well balanced, fleshy and long. It has both the freshness and polish of marble.

Red: The red is ruby, cherry and dark garnet. Its bouquet is composed of black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry) and red fruits (cherry) plus liquorice, lilac and rose petals, evolving towards cooked fruits. On the palate, the tannins respect the fruit and give the wine a well-defined structure. After a few years of cellaring, its chewiness becomes deliciously melting. A slightly closed aftertaste is a good sign of persistence.
