Description - Oeil, Nez, Bouche, Domaine Alain Geoffroy


The eye

light golden yellow with slight greenish glints. Bright, luminous and clear.

The nose

shows instantly both maturity and freshness in a festival of flowers and fruits. The floral notes of menthol, acacias and citronella mingle with grapefruit, butterscotch and freshly-baked buns…

The mouth

is powerful with pretty, harmonious mellowness, perfectly supported by its frank, yet unaggressive liveliness. Our pleasure lasts thanks to a long finish with a distinct mineral presence enhanced by a delicate hint of wood.
