  • Tasting notes:

    Appearance: Intense golden yellow, crystalline transparency with luminous highlights. Extremely fine, light mousse resulting from an infinity of micro bubbles which link up into a warm embrace.
    Bouquet: an aggressive, high impact nose, noble, rich and fruity, enhanced by notes of nuts and dried and fresh fruit and marron glacé. Finely charred ebony and Oriental wood sensations, dark and elegant floweriness. Marked spiciness, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon and cloves.
    Palate: continually evolving palate with an emerging warm, persistent but never excessive or unpleasant acidity. A complex wine both sweetly fruity and spicy at the same time. The Oriental woods which are so tangible on the nose are perfectly reflected on the palate together with smoky, tobacco sensations. Stale bread crust, butter and custard temper all these powerful sensations.

  • Food pairing suggestions:

    A gourmet champagne for lovers of powerful, complex sensations, an experience to live slowly and passionately. It is at its best with foie gras on its own, with toast and with slow cooked escalope. It accompanies it with its complex creaminess, exalting aromas without ever concealing them. It is also excellent without food as a contemplative wine for a unique experience with special friends or alone.
