An elegant sparkling wine with exceptional balance and poise. It has an attractive pale golden hue with a continuous stream of very fine, minute bubbles. Alluring floral aromas of hawthorne and almond blossom mingle with butterscotch and nougat, alongside sweet apple tarte tatin, panettone and a hint of marzipan. Flavours of preserved lemons, yellow peach and nectarine with medlar and russet apple marry toasted brioche and notes of hazelnut on the palate. The mousse has a wonderfully soft, creamy texture with beautifully balanced acidity and seamless integration of autolytic character plus a touch of saline minerality on the extremely long finish. This delightful sparkling wine shows abundant elegance and finesse.
Serve this wonderfully food-friendly sparkling wine well-chilled with savoury pastry dishes such as salmon-en-croute or seafood filo parcel. Also pairs well with poultry dishes such as chicken with garlic mushroom cream sauce. Try it with wild mushroom and rice timbale or creamy mushroom risotto.
