Tasting Notes

Pale yellow with a bright silver highlights. Intense with floral notes of elderberry, hawthorn and rhubarb. After a short aeration, appear the exotic fruits (passion fruit, mango), followed by lemon, orange and roasted hazelnut. The attack is frank, very well balanced between freshness, a very pleasant volume, and a very interesting density. The acidity gradually comes to the fore, culminating in very fine freshness, then appear notes of elderberry and rhubarb. 101 Rangs presents a very good length, displaying mineral, white flowers, and a very nice salty finish, sotypical of our Flinty Terroir.
