Notes from Bernard Bohn on the personality of this wine: I reveal myself with apple and bitter orange freshness. My smooth persistence wraps the palate with honey and chestnut notes, beeswax and noble tanins reminding one of Oolong tea. I can be paired with tapas, anchovy puree, offal or some braised veal shanks.
