This Champagne has a strong green-yellow colour with pale lemon-yellow hints. With a rather fluid and shining aspect, it is lively with fine, vivid bubbles that create a delicate bottle-neck.
The first nose reveals hawthorn and acacia, wet chalk, peppermint, green apple, and fresh grapes with a touch of anise. When aerated, it turns to notes of whipped cream, chives, lemon zests, and yellow grapefruit with a pinch of nutmeg. The approach in the palate is soft and fresh, with a creamy and melted effervescence. The wine develops a sensation of citrus pulp, apple, and pear flesh, enhanced by zesty aromas which bring freshness to the whole. The mid-palate is orchestrated with a very pure chalky minerality. The finish is fleshy fruits combined with that chalky elegance and a subtle dosage, to deliver an ultimate sensation of creamy and iodised melt.
