A vibrant light pink with some depth and elegant salmon hues. It has a fine persistent bead.
The bouquet is very pretty with aromas of cherries, fresh berries and an underlying creaminess. The aromatics are subtle, fresh and unfold floral and mineral suggestions.
Serve as an aperitif, with canapés and poultry over the next 2+years.
Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has fresh flavours of juicy strawberries and pomegranate, melded with a gentle layering of creaminess. The mouthfeel is refreshing with fine, lacy acidity and the effervescence provides a creaminess to the texture and flow. The wine carries seamlessly with lovely elegance and a persistent finish. This is a harmoniously balanced, elegant method traditionnelle with cherries and red fruits on a seamless flowing palate.
