Appearance : A beautiful golden yellow colour with flecks of pink gold teaming with umpteen strings of bubbles.
Nose : Complex, elegant, full of finesse...just like lace. Hints of violets, mirabelle plums and wild raspberries. As the wine breathes, notes of liquorice and menthol appear and add to the overall complexity.
Palate : Fresh and refreshing with the same beautiful elegance. Plums and raspberries mingle together to give a silky vinosity. The perfectly judged dosage allows the mineral nature of the terroir to shine through and underpins a long finish ending on a note of blood oranges.
Food matching : Ideal as an aperitif or served with stuffed quail, or saddle of saltmeadow lamb.
Awards : Gold medal at the Concours des Féminalise 2018 and 2016. First prize at Vinalies held at the Congrès des OEnologues de France 2016.
