Vin de Pay d'Oc (Côtes de Thongue)
Silberne Medaille Concours Vignerons Indépendants 2016
A sparkling light yellow colour. Flowery aroma of white flowers, with a hint of litchee. Nice balance between freshness and being full bodied and aromatic. Long elegant finish, with a hit of chopped hazel nuts. This wine has a velvety texture against your palate.
