Tasting & keeping
Eye: Gold color, of great brilliance, with green tints. Fine and regular effervescence.
Nose: Delicate bouquet of youth and spring, centered on floral aromas (hawthorn), fresh white fruits (pear, sabayon fruit), citrus fruits (lemon confit) and some touches of toasted almonds.
Palate: On the palate, the sensation is at first soft, full and creamy, but it is quickly coupled with a vivacity and a great energy, almost "chalky", which is the signature of the big Chardonnays of Mesnil, of Avize and Cramant. The mid-palate perfectly integrates the great maturity of fruit (white peach), fleshy, vinous and freshness, in a balanced, seductive and sensual sweetness. The length is supported by the very present acidity but totally "coated" by the density and the sweetness of wine.
