The blond colour with pale golden highlights announces a wine mostly composed of Pinot Noir and reflects a perfect maturity. The effervescence is long-tasting, giving birth to a persistent and delicate mousse with fine bubbles. The first impression on the nose is marked by great intensity. It is opening on biscuit, mature wheat, pear and cherry flavour. After a few seconds, the nose became wider. The iris, oak, celery, white pepper and fine mineral aromas bring depth and complexity to the wine. With air, melted butter and toast notes appear, reflecting an harmonious evolution of the wine. There is a fine balance between the primary aromas (fruits), secondary (biscuit, bread, butter) and tertiary (minerals and spices).
At the table, it will pair with delicate and soft in texture meals such as quenelles, poached white meats, fresh raw fish with sauce and hard cheeses.
