AOP Pacherenc du Vic Bilh
This intense, yellow wine has silvery tints. Powerful and complex on the nose, with notes of lemon and grapefruit balancing harmoniously with slightly honeyed touches of vanilla. Very soft attack leading into a very refreshing liveliness. The finish is long and aromatic, with notes of bitter almond. This aromatic and structured wine is proof that Pacherencs can hold a place among the great dry whites.
