Cavesa le CAVE, le club des amateurs de vins exquis

Saumur blanc, L'Echelier, Roches Neuves - 2021

This wine has an almost crystalline straw yellow colour, limpid, bright and brilliant. The nose combines concentration, freshness, generosity, power, fruity, floral and citrus notes. In the mouth the attack is straight, powerful and fruity. The finish transcends by its clarity and richness. Guide Vert RVF: 95/100
