Review and Tasting
Sampled on 03/11/2016
Clear, light golden with slight green tinge and lively persistent bubbles.
Brioche, hay bales, crisp green apples and very faint rhubarb and pine sap.
Clean and well-balanced with delicate creamy green apple fruit, zesty bite, good biscuit notes and a touch of yeast.
Cleansing minerally and citrus finish.
A great aperitif champagne with a relatively soft mousse and mouthfeel.
