Tasting notes by Bruno Paillard
EYE: Bright, yellow gold, indicating a generous wine. Very fine beading, lively effervescence.
NOSE: Ample, generous, marked by a powerful vitality. Primary aromas of cherries, mixed with small red fruit and enveloped in ripe citrus notes.
PALATE: Lively attack whose generosity is deployed, bringing with it a surprising energy. A profusion of spices and ripe fruit notes mixed with fresh almond and wild strawberries.
