Colour

A bright and fluid golden colour, with deep light-yellow tints.

Nose

At first, displaying delicate and floral aromas, with head notes of rose, violet, orange blossom, and iodine tones. As it aerates in the glass, the Champagne reveals fragrances of peach, kumquat, quince compote, mandarin, apple and orange, with hints of wild strawberry and herbs.

Palate

The wine is soft and fresh on entry, accompanied by creamy, smooth bubbles. The explosive aromas are bathed in fruits. The Champagne is crisp and juicy, set off by a perfectly taut orangey acidity. Its energy and richness express themselves all the way through the tasting, underpinned by saline notes, a round fruitiness and wonderful length on the palate. This single-vineyard Champagne shows great finesse and balance with a fantastically clean finish of crystalline and well-honed exotic fruit.
