Tasting notes

A beautiful golden yellow colour, fresh on the nose, despite its age, evoking green fruits – apple, pear – and a delightful toastiness. On the palate confirmation of its freshness, very crisp and well balanced. An excellent vintage and a perfect example of vintage blanc de blancs at its best.

Food pairing

Equally excellent as an ‘any time’ aperitif or to accompany food. Oysters, fish and shellfish.
