Description - Oeil, Nez, Bouche, Domaine Alain Geoffroy


The eye

Pale light gold with slight greenish glints. Bright, luminous and clear.

The nose

is powerful but delicate and fresh. It reflects the maturity that we had already discovered through its radiant golden colour. The aromas are oscillating between citrusy notes and blossoming white flowers.

The mouth

Is bold but smooth, a pleasant balance between powerful mellowness and tender vivacity. The fresh vegetal notes and the discreet floral flavor enhance its gourmet fruity side. The finish is long and definitely mineral ; it perfectly expresses the typical sharpness and charm of Vau Ligneau wines.
