Description - Oeil, Nez, Bouche, Domaine Alain Geoffroy


The eye

pale light gold in colour with slight greenish glints. Bright, luminous and limpid.

The nose

is a wonderful combination of elegant white flowers, freshly baked buns and tender vegetal scents. Despite this strong and generous character, it remains delicate and full of charm : an harmonious balance of maturity, freshness and  subtlety.

The mouth

immediately shows this wine’s powerful nature as well as its richness and elegance. The finish is very long, almost never-ending, as if it does not wish to be forgotten.
