The Petit Courbu brings silkiness, body and a mellow texture, accompanied by floral notes, fruitiness and an iodized freshness. The Petit Manseng brings minerality, a richness of the constituents, and rigour and order to the aromas. The woodiness is subtle and well integrated, to "leave room" for the wine. Length, freshness and volume on the palate.
