ALL THE HALLMARKS OF THE FINEST BLENDED CHAMPAGNES: COMPLEX AROMAS, GREAT BALANCE AND BEAUTIFULLY SOFT EFFERVESCENCE.
Appearence, a tempting golden colour with sustained and steady effervescence.
Nose, a really spring-like bouquet with delicate aromas of peony and jasmine, a fresh note of almonds and the gorgeous scent of fresh bread. The superb balance is a sign not only of the quality of the terroir, but also of extended ageing in the cellars.
Palate, a brisk attack before the smoothness of the wine comes through. Good balance of freshness and body, soft effervescence on the tongue, and a modest dosage all combine to produce a beautifully silky texture. The same aromas that were evident on the nose are reflected on the palate, plus a touch of minerality on the finish that is both pleasantly fresh and satisfyingly full.
Service, serve at 10°C (500 F) Ideal as an aperitif but also an excellent match with shellfish and grilled fish.
