Champagne with golden yellow tints and a fine and light foam.
The nose, of white flowers, white-fleshed fruit and delicate mineral notes, expresses all the purity of this Champagne. The silky mouth, with buttery notes, reveals remarkable structure.
Ideal as an aperitif, this Champagne Volupté will also be a marvellous accompaniment to delicate fish like roast line-caught sea bass or turbot, and… goat's cheese or Parmesan.
"The graphite aroma adds another dimension to the bread dough, candied berry and citrus flavors in this intense, structured Champagne. This shows fine harmony and expression of Pinot Noir. Though not aged long enough to meet the legal vintage requirements, all the grapes are from the 2004 harvest. Drink now through 2013. 20 cases imported."
"Pale yellow. Fresh peach and tangerine on the nose, with notes of floral honey and smoky herbs adding complexity. Juicy and plump, offering fresh citrus and pit fruit flavors and a touch of anise. Ample and broad but not lacking for energy, finishing with an echo of smokiness and excellent, juicy persistence."
