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.
