ISA White 2013 : 3 hearts

Bright white gold with a light green hue. A very refreshing summertime bouquet, pleasant and feminine notes of apricot and peach, light floral notes at the outset developing onto a stronger presence of honeysuckle. Well rounded and full bodied on the palate with smooth citrus aromas

leading to a wonderfully vivacious finish. Great fruity length. Ideal as an aperitif or for enjoying throughout a meal thanks to its aromatic diversity and fine balance. Serve chilled.

ISA Rosé 2013 : 1 heart
Pink gold with silver highlights. A nose of fresh red fruit with discrete mineral and menthol notes. A light tannic body and pleasant aromas of sharp red fruit. A wine to be enjoyed at a barbecue or an aperitif. Serve chilled.

ISA Red 2012 : 3 hearts
Bright and clear purple hue. A progressively complex and elegant nose of fruit of the forest, dried tomatoes and autumn undergrowth. Supple on the palate, it offers a wonderful fruity roundness which evolves onto a dense and rich body which echoes the wonderful fruity, jammy

aromas. Excellent length, inviting and rich, spicy and fruity.
Delightful body for this well balanced, rich and aromatic wine. Open two hours before serving. Serving suggestions include small game, such as guinea fowl or well matured cheese.

Camille Léonie 2009 : 4 hearts
Deep, bright garnet with carmine red highlights. Real character with the bouquet! Aromas of animal and leather along with smoky and fruity notes of slightly spiced black cherries. A wonderfully gentle attack on the palate which evolves quickly into great volume, with its superb

aromatic body supported by well-balanced tannins. A long, lingering finish with notes of roasted coffee, spices and liquorice. Virility, suppleness, power and elegance are all present in this truly fine wine, an ambassador for its terroir. May be cellar aged for a reasonable length of time.
