Anjou Blanc (AOC) "Roches des Rochelles" 2021 VIN BIO

Tasting Notes: A superb clear straw robe. Intense, complex, and evocative nose of matured sweetness: acacia honey, compote apricot enhanced by a vegetal note combining vigor and elegance with hints of lime blossom and verbena. The palate is generous: creamy from the start, ensuring perfect aromatic continuity, smoothness around a silky gustatory volume well balanced by a lively astringency. Delightfully, it reveals white fruits, quince jelly, and delicately vanilla, toasted dried fruits, thanks to judiciously controlled aging.
