Golden straw, sparkling clear and transparent. Abundance of fine, light but persistent bubbles. On the nose, lively and expressive. Scents of dried flowers still with traces of their original freshness develop into faded overtones of straw and forest floor. When the wine has breathed slightly, a discreet dash of vanilla coupled with nuances of fresh butter and freshly baked bread. Flavors are supple, honest and powerful. The wine seems to launch into lively aromas that are lightness itself, perfectly orchestrated scents of cooked fruits admirably sharpened by a dash of eau-de-vie, preserve figs and quince jelly. Sparkling with fine fresh bubbles, the wine grows rounder as it develops, offering heady notes of exotic fruits (mango, lychees and passion fruit).
Pair with a white meat (veal, poultry) in a creamy sauce or a sweet-sour meal (duck with pears or peaches) are ideal partners of this lively champagne.
Blend: 80% Pinot Meunier, 20% Chardonnay
