Tasting note
On the eye: GOLDEN ELEGANCE
Sparkling golden green highlights with refined, delicate bubbles.
On the nose: SUBTLE
An initial and extremely elegant touch of sandalwood and cedar gives way to a more generous and precise bouquet of gingerbread, orange blossom and dried apricot. The lasting aromas are those of meringue, cocoa and liquorice, finishing with a more mineral tone of underwood, camphor and bergamot orange.
On the palate: ENERGETIC
Between firmness and warmth, richness and complexity, its marvellous purity expresses creamy notes of peony, brown sugar and delicious aromas of gingerbread blossoming in a sheer freshness and an everlasting finish.
Weather: WET AND SWELTERING
During a year of pouring rains, a heat wave in August burnt the grapes, nevertheless resulting in a vibrant, complex vintage.
