Our Perle de Lune has a nice pale golden color with silver tints.
The color is bright and attractive.
The nose is really expressive with a great complexity. The soil and the blending of the grape varieties provide terrific concentration. The nose reveals fresh notes like verbena and star anise and also floral notes like hawthorn and acacia. With some air, citrus notes provide relief and fine length.
Straightforward, the palate is well-balanced. The same aromas on the nose carry over on the palate. This is a wine that needs some attention in order to bring out its sweatness, strength and balance.
