Lätta dofter av jäst och bageri. Sanningen är att jag hittade en speciell smak.
Det är viktigt att öppna den innan du dricker.

Bebi este Champagne entre horas. Conheci-o numa degustação.
Tem uma cor muito intensa. Bons aromas de levedura. É um Chardonnay muito equilibrado.

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%.

4/5

The Moët & Chandon Brut 2009 gave off aromas of yeast. Taste of ripe fruit in the mouth.
There still exists a potential for development.
