Tasting notes by Bruno Paillard
EYE Intense and bright greeny-gold with extremely tiny, numerous bubbles.
NOSE After the first «salty-iodic» notes quickly escape, its vivacity shows through citrus fruit dominated scents, together with fresh almond. A few more minutes will allow « calisson » and candied orange skin aromas to develop.
PALATE Fresh but generous, harmonious balance, with minerality and a long persistance. A fine and elegant wine which can be enjoyed as an aperitif or through the meal, including spicy food. Avoid sweets matching.
