The intense dress in the golden yellow nuances decorates of a light cordon of fine and persistent bubbles. The opened nose expresses himself on characters of apple ripe (mature) strengthened by soft levurées and brioche‐like notes. The mouth, in the subtle attack, develops on the power and the generous vinosité. Finale long find a beautiful balance between a point(headland) of structuring bitterness, the fraicheur and fleshy one delicate. Brioche‐like, complex and generous beautiful vouvray.
Good match with all the moments of user‐friendliness, the parties and the ceremonies, the wines of honors, but also in apéritif, only or in cocktail. It will also very feel at ease on a fruit salad without sugar or a soup of ginger strawberries. To serve at 8° C.
