This rare white wine from a vineyard in Saint-Emilion is produced by Gérard Perse of Château Pavie. Now mature, this ripe, bitter-almond and spice flavored wine shows a touch of scorched wood. As a contrast, there is a rich, almost buttery character that gives the wine a full texture. Ready to drink.
