      Tasting notes :

      A delicate pale gold with silvery highlights in the glass. On the nose, concentrated quince & citrus aromas are balanced by gentle honey and brioche notes from cellar aging. White tropical fruits follow on the palate as the fine persistent bubbles create a mousse with a firm attack. A long, balanced crisp finish. Drink now or age for three to four years.
