Tasting Notes –
Delicate aromas of jasmine and orange blossom combine with ripe plum and citrus notes. The palate is lively and fresh with a fruity rounded character and creamy finish. Thirty-six months maturing on its lees before release give this champagne characterful brioche notes and developping biscuit flavours right through the palate.
Mushrooms and champagne are a great pairing, so any sort of starter you can make using mushrooms (think girolles and cepes) will work incredibly well. Or, try with sushi as a real decadent treat.
Awards and reviews –
“Melted candel wax and the flesh of plums combine on the nose. Simmered fruit compote notes with foamy freshness on the palate with good intensity and reasonable length.” 91 points, TH, 2020
