“A golden color, delicate bubbles and a fine bead of foam. On the nose, an endless farandole of intoxicating aromas. Sonate 2011 is pure from the moment it is put in the mouth, illuminated by a delicious tension thanks to the absence of dosage (no added sugar at the time of disgorgement). The mouth becomes a silky caress, carried by the minerality of the soils of the plots chosen in Courteron (Côte de Champraux and Charme de Fin), in which the vines are deeply rooted. Refreshing and dense finish, perhaps the mark of the yeast strain selected by the house in 2006. Remarkable length in the mouth” (Guide Véron des Champagnes 2019).
