TASTING NOTES

Its straw-yellow colour is accompanied with a fine persistent mousse crowning the disc with a fine and harmonious cord. On the nose, the first aromas of hazelnut and brioche awake the senses. After a few moments, with much of delicacy, subtle notes of vanilla and dried fruit are married with more subtle lemony flavors. The nose is both elegant and powerful, which indicates a wine of great complexity and a beautiful harmony. Once in your mouth, aromas of butter, “crème brûlée” and spices (white pepper) blossom awaken taste buds. It is a gourmand and generous wine with an exceptional freshness. After several minutes of tasting, the complexity and the scarcity of this wine give us an explosion of flavors in the mouth, a real aromatic symphony. Such an incredible personality for this Champagne! This vivacious wine lets your mind wander from bubbles to aromas, that may open our heart.

 

SERVING

Crayfish and porcini mushrooms, scallop tartare or a “foie gras” pan-fried will bring depth and a beautiful aromatic evolution.
