Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and crisp

Pale straw yellow colour with moonlight reflections, clear and brilliant; fairly fine bubbles, not very persistent in the string. Open nose with notes of pomelo, white peach and elderberry, and a hint of citrus. Crisp attack, with a bubble that bursts quickly. Character of citrus fruits and white flowers. Spicy, tense finish on citrus fruits and minerality.

Features

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.

Do you know ?

Ageing on racks is a winemaking process that is specific to sparkling wines. The wine lays horizontally on racks to go through a second fermentation after the addition of sugar.

    Excellent. Equilibré, beaucoup mieux qu'un champagne moyen. Mes invités ont très apprécié et ils étaient 100

    De bien bonnes bouteilles élaborées par un professionnel de qualité sur un beau terroir. Je recommande mais à boire avec modération, bien entendu.
