A brut made from a select blending of new wines and reserve wines that would be perfect before dinner, but could equally accompany a meal with dishes carefully paired for the occasion.
Vinified in enameled steel tanks and oak casks. Majority of the 2007 harvest.
Visual impression : It pleases the eye with its abundant and creamy foam when served. A lively effervescence enhances the length and persistence of its rim ring. Brilliant golden in color, it has striking clarity.
Nose : A pleasing round and fruity bouquet marries yellow fruits (apricots and peaches), and dried fruits (raisins and dried apricots). When swirled the rich alcohol notes of cognac and Armagnac waft up.
Palate : The pleasingly supple palate of dried fruit notes reflects the bouquet. The finish shines with maturity and freshness. This last lends it a pleasant thirst-quenching quality.
