The labeling is done in the year of production, stored in a reducing environment (without oxygen), it can be drunk young, within the year.
The color can vary from pale gold to deeper yellow and the flavor is characterized by aromas of fresh grapes, white flowers, citrus and exotic fruit. Perfect as an aperitif, with foie gras, cheese, and chocolate desserts.
