A vibrant, clear yellow colour with golden reflections. Good brilliance with sustained effervescence and a very persistent foam.
Is delicate, fresh and fruity, filled with white-fleshed fruits (pears, Bosc apples), apricots, as well as hazelnuts and fresh almonds. Several floral and spicy notes add an extra hint of complexity. Also reveals superb olfactory intensity on a more biscuity, brioche-like base.
A balanced wine, rounded and full-bodied, with an attack scented with ripe fruits (greengages and nectarines). The finish is long, the well-integrated dosage giving way to the characteristic freshness of the Chardonnay which makes up most of the blend.
