Drinking Window: 2018 - 2020
A combination of jasmin blossom and chamomile with pinch of fresh tarragon and green apple make for the enticing aromas here. The mousse is lively yet not pretentious, while a balanced blend of summer peach and white pepper rushes through the palate. This is an excellent companion to salmon rillettes with toasted buttery sourdough points.
