Wine Region: Rhone Valley - France Grape: Marsanne
Tasting notes: In appearance the wine is golden yellow. The nose is mineral with floral overtones of honeysuckle and lily in its youth, Tabasco, wax, honey. On the palate, it is well-balanced. A very harmonious wine with a subtle final of spices developing into honey with ageing.
