Tasting

With a pale gold colour, the nose is like a photo of this years’ perfectly ripe vintage. It reveals dried apricots, jammed fruits, a toastiness with beautiful citrus zests bringing the freshness alive. The attack in the mouth is round, with a light touch of sweetness, accompanied by a very aromatic full body and a magnificent long persistence in the month. The Moulin des Dames White is a perfect example of an ideal ripeness on a unique terroir. Thanks to its ageing, this is a wine which knows how to wait to be opened.

Food and wine combinations

This wine pairs perfectly with fish in a creamy sauce, poultry, truffles, oriental dishes, blue & goats cheese… Or simply as an aperitif.
