Villion Blanc de l’ Atlantique 2017

Tasting Notes

Light straw in colour, with a luminous golden hue. Clear and brilliant.

Explosive, forward array of jasmine perfumed spice, decadent cinnamon-dusted apricot and peach slices, ending in an overpowering bouquet of early orange blossoms.

Smooth velvet entry coated in vanilla spice and caramel cream, with a cheeky, vivacious freshness extending the tasting pleasure. A tantalizing, dry texture on the finish completes this unique wine.
