Bright, pale yellow, with white gold glints and a very fine bubble.
The nose is delicate, but still very expressive with wonderful aromatic freshness with notes of pomelo, white fruits, lime tree, frangipani flowers, and delicate hints of pineapple and ginger.
This wine is striking, yet voluptuous and vibrant, showing a silky texture with a lively edge, and finishing with a balanced bittersweet flavour.
It releases notes of passion fruits, citrus fruit, ripe white fruit such as vine peaches, and subtle notes of acacia honey that bring a velvety sensation.
The long finish is tightly wound on the pure line of characteristic chalky minerality for which the Côte des Blancs is famous.
