Description - Oeil, Nez, Bouche, Domaine Alain Geoffroy


The eye

Light gold with greenish glints. Bright, luminous and clear.

The nose

is rich and ripe, full of flowers at first, then revealing its fruity aromas with sweet, mellow scents.

The mouth

is very powerful with a strong mineral character that enhances the fruit and fine vegetal flavours. Its mellowness harmonizes perfectly with its vivacity on a solid structure that illustrates perfectly the special nature of the wine.
