The brilliant body is pale yellow with silver highlights, a sign of the high proportion of exceptional Chardonnays. The bubbles are fine and form a persistent and delicately creamy ring of foam. The wine is subtle and fresh on the nose. The initial mineral aromas quickly give way to green and then floral notes with the fragrance of elderflowers and spicy cinnamon undertones. The entry onto the palate is clean and lively, dominated by very exceedingly fresh citrus notes. These segue into much fuller, rounder and silkier flavours where white peaches in syrup predominate. The finish is rich, lingering and bursting with flavour.

Press:
'Pale gold, 'developed' yeasty nose, fine mousse, acidity and balance. Notes of yellow stone fruit, nuts, brioche. Although it never declares its vintage on the label this is always a vintage wine.' - The Buyer

Food match:

Fine white fish should be on the menu for a Champagne as delicate and refined as this. Try Dover Sole with a light beurre blanc.
