    TASTING NOTES

    The wine presents a brilliant colour with early reflections of a clear golden hue. The mousse is creamy and the sparkle is extremely fine and continuous. The aroma is intense and complex, with elegant notes of golden delicious apple, bread crust and with an 'encore' or after-aroma of citrus fruit. To the palate the flavour is fresh, dry, savoury and well-balanced with a strong persistence and distinct mineral character.
  • Dream of freshness and character come true.

    TASTING NOTES

    From its initial crystal clear reflections the straw-yellow colour will be perfectly evident. The intense and exuberant mousse is accompanied by a very fine, continuous and persistent perlage. The aroma is complex, presenting an essential pureness, with elegant hints of chamomile, wild flowers, alfalfa, acacia, golden apple and a slight hint of lemon peel. To the palate it is full and dry, savoury and pleasantly delicate, with a significant mineral character and fresh acidity.
  • A fizzy guarantee of purity and energy. It remains stored upside down for quite a long time. You will be thrilled when you decide to organise a ‘dégorgement at the table’.

    TASTING NOTES

    In terms of appearance the wine presents an evident, deep golden colour with an exuberant and rich mousse. A very fine, continuous perlage generates voluptuous fountains of effervescence. The intense aroma, with elegant hints of ripe apple-like fruit is also reminiscent of white flowers and crusty bread. To the palate it has a dry, full and savoury and yet at the same time fine and delicate taste, with considerable persistence and a significant mineral character.
