Grapes harvested at a very high level of maturity, the Petit Manseng releases all the richness and purity of its aromas, enhanced by careful maturation in barrels.
Expressive and true, the nose gives off an aromatic palette of candied fruits, honey and almond, carried by a beautiful freshness marked by citrus and spice. A delicious, suave richness invades the mouth with notes of candied apricots, brandied fruit, cooked apples and white truffles, delicately accompanied by toasted notes. The structure and vibrancy carry the wine with pleasant flavours of fruit jelly and orange peel.
