Our oenologists' opinion
Bright straw yellow colour with green highlights, beautiful bouquet of white fruits, toasted notes, roasted notes with a fresh hint of lemon zest, chalky mineral notes. Beautiful balance with great tension, fine and melted bubbles, nice character with aromas of exotic fruits, citrus fruits then toasted notes, slightly vanilla. Beautiful straightforward length, frank, tense with minerality.
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.
