AOP Saumur

Domaine de Nerleux 2016

€415 Bottle of 10cl

This Saumur has a straw yellow color with a subtle hint of warm gold. The nose is beautifully delicate, with notes of honeysuckle and acacia developing into fresh pear. The palate has an opulent character while remaining light and airy. Its floral flavors linger on to combine with slightly spicy end-notes. The natural minerality of the Chenin grape brings a nice touch of freshness and excellent length of flavor.
