Tasting

Millésime 2006

Aspect

The golden yellow hue marked with intense green glints telling its vigor. The bubbles are fine and lively producing a beautiful brightness and forming a complete ring of foam to the surface.

Nose

Mature with a well affirmed style
The first nose is precise and amazing. Cooked pear, lys, honey and almond set the tone on a smoked background. After ventilation, the expression widen on shortbread biscuits, roots, beeswax… but retains all its freshness with a hint of citrus fruits and orgeat.

Mouth

The attack is frank. The wine is taut with a light tonic sensation. The bubbles bring a kind of fluidity. In the second mouth, the beautiful livelyness and the light tannins are still more felt. The set is tight and firm. Great minerality, purity feeling

The finale is sharp, long (8 seconds) and tasty (acidity, tannins, salt). This cuvee is best tasted in a curved flute around 12°C. To go with the wine minerality and its dense structure, serve with firm textures : grilled bar fish, red mullet, monkfish, thuna, iberic ham and aged cheeses like parmeggiano, comté and gouda will be best partners.
