Merveille de Lilas

Merveille de Lilas comes from our Rocamadour Vineyard. This Terroir is ideal for Muscat culture too. The soil made of Limestone and clay gives a lot of freshness to the wines. Hot and dry days combined to fresh nights ensure the good maturity of the grapes while preserving all the aromatic potential of both grapes varieties.


Color
Merveille de Lilas has a golden yellow color.

Nose

First nose is powerful, dominated by apricot and floral notes. When swirling, it is an explosion of fruits (apricot, peach and pineapple) and floral flavors (white and pink flowers). Nose is very expressive, complex and elegant.


Taste

In mouth, the wine shows from the start its personality. The wine reveals a pure maturity with a concentration of apricots, pineapple aromas, white and pink flavors as well as smoke notes. The mouth is well balanced between sugar and freshness with a beautiful length confirming the delightful feeling of Merveille de Lilas.
