4 /5

- Bright pale yellow with glimmers of green. Fine, dynamic bead.
- Initial floral notes of linden, honeysuckle and acacia with citrus nuances evocative of bergamot and mandarin orange zest along with a dash of anise and green tomato. Following are notes of just-ripe stone fruits - white peach, nectarine and Mirabelle plums.
- The bouquet is completed by gentle scents of pastry, brioche, frangipane, almonds and vanilla with a slight hint of white pepper.
- This vintage is vivacious and lively. The underlying acidity orients the linear, focused palate; the tautness is enveloped and channelled by the texture of succulent notes of white fruits which envelop and channel the freshness toward a vibrant, mouth-watering finish with a lingering note of citrus fruit.
- Chardonnay 40%, Pinot Noir 37%, Pinot Meunier 23%.

Its intense colour attracted me. The final reminded me of bakery flavours.The taste was like fresh grapes.
Best paired with other food than the one we ordered.
At a friend's wedding.

I especially liked the colour. Reminds me of other sparkling wines, aromas of yeast.Good flavour and long aftertaste.
We had it with snacks.
That sparkling is perfect for special occasions.

I drank this Chardonnay  with my partner.
Very light flavour. Yeasty smell. Light wine, more than expected.
I'd like to try it with a carpaccio.
