(made entirely from marsanne): Vivid yellow-gold. Candied citrus fruits, ginger, mint and dusty minerals on the high-pitched nose. Intense, focused and dry on the palate, with serious depth and power to its orchard fruit, lemon pith and floral flavors, and a refreshingly bitter edge. Finishes energetic and long, with excellent clarity and a strong jolt of minerality. (Mar13)

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.
