- The Wine
A complex example of Amigne which unites power with velvety softness. Pale-yellow wine with crystalline brilliance and an intense nose of ripe fruit and lime flower (linden). Lively and full-bodied on the palate with a harmonious finish. Dry and unique.
Ben says (December 2016): It is hard to add or detract from the notes above. This wine keeps it's youth and strength as the years pass but some tertiary notes will be forthcoming soon, I am sure.
Ben says (July 2018): The note from 2016 has started to come true. The wine has moved from it's initial youth into a far more mellow maturity. Plenty of honey has appeared. The acidity remains lower than most Anigne and it has become a very pleasant wine indeed but not what you would typically expect from this grape. well worth snatching up at a reduced price.
Serving Suggestions:White meats, salmon in puff pastry, cream sauces.
In Depth:The appellation "Vétroz Grand Cru," is limited to four grape varieties and designates wines produced according to regulations, established in 1993, which require limited yields and rigorous standards of vinification. For each vintage a commission of judges inspects and certifies all plots designated as Grand Cru.
tasting notes:Amigne based wines tend to be full bodied and aromatic, with citrus, stonefruit, herbaceous aromas and almond flavours.
