AOC (label of origin) Cassis White

  • slide fichetechnique

Some connoisseurs appreciate this white wine well balanced. It's aniseed-flavoured freshness and salted touches, it offers a vigorous and material taste over flavors becoming honeyed and finally iodized.
This straw-colored wine evolves softly to tastes of acacia and peach syrup.
Delicately balanced when in mouth, this wine is required on your table from to-day.
White of gastronomy, it will perfectly come with fish, seafood, bouillabaisse and goat's cheese.
And you'll be surprised with spicy food and sushi.

This very mineral dry white wine with a golden colour, will be the ideal companion for a mediterranean iodine cuisine. It will perfectly fit a grilled fish or en sauce fish or bouillabaisse or garlic mayonnaise. As well it will reveale the iodine taste of shellfishes and crustaceans.

With highly-seasoned cuisine based on pesto or a curried chicken this wine will match balance and length on those spicy notes.
Its delicacy and its length will perfectly come with sushis or Japanese fish cooking. They absolutely match with those spicy flavours.

Service temperature 12°C / 53,6°F
If possible open the bottle 15 min. before starting meal
