Silt sandy-clayey subsoil Tasting notes: Intense & fresh nose. Fine bubbles with elegant citrus fruits notes of lemon & grapefruit. Nuances of bread yeasts & smoky notes. A fresh attack & structured acidity. Refreshing & fruity, with a creamy touch. Nuances of brioche & hot bread. Beautiful maturity. Food Pairings: Perfect as an aperitif to celebrate an occasion or with decadent desserts. The cooked fruits flavours of the wine predispose it to accompany a tart tatin, pound cake, hot pears or canapés to start an evening with a bang! Serving Temperature: 9-10°C
