Domaine Rolet - L'Etoile - White - 2017 - 750 ml
WHAT THE WINEMAKERS ARE SAYING
“The appellation draws its name from the 5 hills that surround it and from the small fossilized stars (étoiles) ‘Pentacrines’ that can be found in its southern exposure soil on the parcel ‘En Novalet’, commune of Plainoiseau. The soils are mainly made of gray Lias marls and covered with a light layer of silty scree. Concerning the wine, the dress is pale gold with silver reflections. The nose reveals aromas of dried fruits such as almond, hazelnut and then turns to slightly toasted notes. Lots of freshness on the palate as well as good acidity” Domaine Rolet
