Tasting Notes

Golden with shimmers of green coating the constant stream of fine, delicate bubbles. Fine and delicate nose which combines white blossom and a certain minerality with general overtones of Anjou, light pear and golden raisins. Subtle hints of anise seed and smoky flavors follow this suggestion of fruit. The taste is vibrant, with a combination of lemon and saltiness. This is immediately followed by a sensation of complex, yet mellow freshness creating the perfect balance between ripeness and a full-rounded flavor. It is rounded off by a long-lasting, crisp finish with hints of salted butter.
