Appearance This French sparkling wine has a pale yellow colored body that casts bright golden reflections. The effervescence is fine and forms a rosy crown.
Nose The aromatics are subtle, fresh, and dominated by white floral aromatics along with stone fruits. The background presents fine yeast aromatics and lite toasted notes.
Palate A smooth and fresh attack onto the palate with a pleasant passage that is big and ripe. There is a long and smooth aftertaste. The retronasal olfaction of this wine pushes raisin and peach notes from the palate back into the nose.
Our personal opinion A well-rounded sparkling wine that is concentrated and ideal for enjoying it by itself at sunset.
