The Champagne comes with a fluid and satin-finished colour, yellow gold with wheat yellow hints. It is crossed by fine and vivid bubbles providing for a delicate string. The visual sensation indicates a fresh wine with aromatic nuances.
The first nose reveals a scent of honeysuckle associated with fragrances of strawberry, cherry and grapefruit. When aerated, it develops into notes of blackcurrant, crystallized grapes, apricot, plum and marmalade with intoxicating fragrance of red rose.
The attack is fresh and supple with creamy and soft effervescence.
The Champagne develops a fruity, voluptuous and mature stuff held by a raspberry and apricot acidity.
The middle mouth is orchestrated by a clay and chalky minerality which gives power, elegance and fruity aromas. The whole reaches a gourmet final with character and fruity notes leaving an ultimate sensation of spicy freshness.
