A white partner for the top Lagrezette red cuvée of Le Pigeonnier, this wine, which is made from grapes grown on chalky soils, has rich tropical, apricot and peach fruits, along with balanced wood aging flavors. It is rich and full in the mouth, making it a serious wine with a serious future. It's fruity now, but likely to develop many more complex flavors with time. Drink from 2017.
