Champagne, France

Tasting Notes

The yellow robe with green tints is enlivened by vigorous effervescence. The fine bubbles are quick to rise to a full mousse.The initial nose has discrete notes of grapefruit, white flowers and crêpes. It is followed by a certain smoky tinge with notes of fresh butter and iodine. As the wine unveils its infinitely elegant character, youthful fragrance is revealed, suggesting real potential. The initial taste is forthright and the wine’s body is instantly apparent. It is concentrated and dense, and underpinned throughout by an intense acidity. Effervescence and sweetness discretely accompany the wine’s sensory qualities to create a silky texture.
