Our oenologists' opinion
Its light straw color offers a nice fresh nose with core notes. In the mouth, this wine presents a nice balance and finesse. It is frank, open and typed with a nice finish on the vibrant minerality of creamy bubbles.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

During the first tasting this champagne, Raymond Duval-Leroy discerned a white flower aroma fragrance evoking a "vine flower." He thus gave it the name "Fleur de Champagne".
