Tasting Notes

The robe is clear yellow gold with hints of green which are typical of the Chardonnay varietal. The mousse is fine and regular with a pretty ribbon of strong bubbles.
Strong and elegant. The attack is finesse, complexity,
and power, with a wide range of aromas: first with aromas of white flowers (acacia and hawthorn) and with peach; the
nose then evolves to orange zest, pear and fresh almonds.
Once aerated, the first notes of spice (gingerbread) and dried flowers appear before making way for a creamy chalkiness.
The attack is very pure. A sensation of smoothness
and strength follows. Aromatics of ripe dried fruit such as
apricots and hazelnut along with white flowers, acacia honey and toasty notes. The steely core fails to conceal the concentration and complexity which promises to evolve over many years of aging.
