Tasting notes
Eye: The pale colour of gold is illuminated with lighter pale-green hues. The generous effervescence is enhanced by a brilliant sparkle

Nose: The bouquet is perfectly balanced between elegance and richness, the elegance expressed in notes of foliage such as fern, tea and linden; and the richness in floral aromas including jasmine, honeysuckle and narcissus. The finish is on pastry aromas, expressing amplitude with buttery notes, as well as intensity with spicy aromas such as cinnamon and vanilla, with a subtle woody touch

Palate: A sensation of mature freshness stands out from the texture of this wine. Initial silky notes of candied apricot and quince lead to smooth textures of dried fruits, hazelnuts and almonds, with the structure developing notes of greengages and black tea
