The colour is a pale but brilliant gold, somewhere between white-gold and yellow, with in some cases greenish highlights. The nose makes an immediate and pleasant impression with a bouquet of may-flowers or acacia, springtime honeysuckle, and broom, together with notes of lemon balm, white peach, verbena, and mint or bracken. As the wine ages, quince jam and pine make their appearance. Lively and fresh, with a slight edge and yet well-rounded, this wine is a reliable introduction to the Mâconnais whites.
It is delicate and supple and has a tender and spontaneous side with a touch of nervosity which does it no harm.
