Has brilliant and intense straw yellow. The ripeness of the noble Burgundy varietal comes through with an intense aroma of yellow fruit, particularly apple and pear, enlivened by a subtle but intriguing floral and citrus vein. Graceful and harmonious, it is striking for its clear-cut, pristine palate. It has considerable body, supported by a crisp acidity.
Pairs well with sushi, Catalan style lobster, and shellfish in general, salmon marinated with dill, couscous with oriental flavours, Venetian style liver and artichokes. Best served at 10°C (50°F).
