More about this wine

This wine is dedicated to Horace-Bénédict de Saussure, the illustrious scientist, naturalist and mountain explorer. In the nose, lychees and lime with a touch of honey. On the palate, fresh and exotic (pineapple and passionfruit come to mind), very rich and round finish. Drink on its own or with classic white wine matches - oven baked arctic char with pink pepper and tarragon for example, or rose veal piccata. Serve well chilled at 8°C.
