(Marsanne (100%): Bright gold. An intensely perfumed bouquet displays tangerine, melon, quince and honey. Juicy citrus fruit and floral flavors are firmed by chalky minerals and pick up an anise quality with air. Finishes smooth and pliant, with excellent clarity and cling. (Mar12)

Le Lombard is  rich, complex wine with a mellow nose of white blossom and hone accompainied by roasty toasted flavours. On the palate, it is fat and opulent yet balanced by the natural acidity. Le Lombard has attractive purity, with a lingering hint of bitterness on it's long finish. It is made from old vines (40 years) facing east/southeast, on the slopes of Coteau de Verlieu. This wine can be drunk for the primary aromas up to 3-4 years, but also for the secondary aromas from 6-10 years.
