Wine : DE L'ORÉE
Vintage : 2006
Country : FRANCE - Cote du Rhone (North)-Hermitage
Grape Variety : Marsanne (100%)
Sight : The intense color of this wine is gold with nice brilliance and elegant thick tears.
Nose : The first nose is complex. The intensity of the second nose reveals the honey, floral, and fruit smell. After agitation of the glass, I am impressed by the bouquet : at different levels there are distinct aromas of honey, hazelnuts, white peach, and marmelade with a hint of citrus.
Palate: The wine is dry, low acidity, with a deep white fruit flavours with a hint of fine savoury honey/quince. It's a creamy silk texture with a very long finish. This wine is outstanding, it is nearly perfection!
Food pairing suggestion : Noix de St Jaques à la créme de noisette ( Scallops with Hazelnuts sauce ).
Bon appétit and happy tasting.
