Les Marnes is aged between 12 and 15 months in demi-
muids, our 500 litres wooden barrels.
Only a very small addition of sulphites, just before bottling.
Colour is deep golden with shiny reflections. Explosive and elegant, the nose is made of light vanilla, floral (acacia and may tree) and butter pastries notes.

Drinking temperature is preferably 10-12 degrees as an aperitif, or between 12 and 14 degrees for a meal.
