Ageing and vinification
Aged for a minimum 9 years.
Bright, clear deep gold and perfectly translucent, tinged with inviting, amber tones. Wonderfully rich, the effervescence forms a lovely stream of bubbles resembling fine pearls.
Fresh, light and engaging on the nose, the Champagne reveals an understated, yet splendid oral and fruity dual character, and is extremely delicate and tenderly zingy, with aromas of herbs, dried owers and lemon zest.
Nervous, defined and expressive, the Champagne makes a clear impression on the palate. Perfectly balanced lovely acidity and low levels of sweetness. Great structure on the palate, with a fresh and harmonious finish of impressive length. Appealing zesty flavours of lemon sorbet generously coat the palate.
Best served at 10 - 12 °C.
