Very shiny golden color, with green tints. Fine regular bubbles. Delicate, young, spring-like bouquet, focusing on floral aromas (hawthorn), fresh white fruit (pear, fruit amandine) and citrus (candied lemon) with a few hints of roasted almonds. On the palate there is first of all a soft, full, creamy sensation which moves on quickly to a strong, lively, almost ‘chalky' taste — the hallmark of great Mesnil, Avize and Cramant chardonnays. In the middle, it perfectly incorporates the full ripeness of fruit (white peach), meatiness, wininess and freshness, in a well-balanced whole which is seductive and sensually gentle. The long-lasting taste is emphasized by the acidity, which although present is completely enveloped by the density and sweetness of the wine. This is a blanc de blancs which is made to last, but which already has a well-established seductiveness.
