Descriptif : Première Côtes de Bordeaux Sweet White

Blend : 90% Semillon and 10% Sauvignon Gris

A nice golden colour with an expressive bouquet, discrete  honey and ginger bread  on the palate, dominated by the roundness  ample and supple.

To consume with « foie gras » or as a dessert wine. One of the ways we prefer this wine is as an appetizer, really fresh, at night before the diner.
