Tasting and Food-pairing
Taste and nose Pale yellow wine. Nose on notes of exotic fruits (mango, passion fruit…), citrus fruits (orange) and slightly mineral. Nice attack on the palate, round, full-bodied, fruity and final on hints of flint, revealing the soil of flint clay (ferruginous) of St Andelain. Slight bitterness bringing complexity to the wine and good aromatic persistence.
Food pairing This wine will go well as an aperitif with Crottins de Chavignol (traditional in the Center-Loire vineyard region), shellfish and seafood, as a main course either with fish and Hollandaise sauce or white meats with cream. Finally, it is accompanied by any type of not too refined dung.
