The near-vertical slope of the Monts Damnés produces wines that have delicate tropical fruit (a proof of ripe Sauvignon grapes) and vibrant citrus aromas. The palate confirms this fruitiness and brings a nice and clean mineral note. Served at 10-12°C, this very concentrated wine expresses its strong personality. With three to five years of bottle-aging, the wine gains roundness, richness and complexity. Very pure, with a racy feel to the lemon pith, white peach, thyme, and gooseberry notes, backed by a brisk flinty edge on the finish. This wine can be enjoyed with a great variety of dishes: Asian recipes, white meats like veal escalope stuffed with prawns and marjoram. As for cheese, a Munster would do a great match.
