The nose is mature, powerful and very clear. The first sent introduces aromas of brioche, vanilla and bakery. Then honey, beeswax and candied fruits appear by the aeration.
After a couple seconds in the glass, we start to recognize the alcohol, the old Portos and the stone fruits. The nose is full and well-balanced.
The mouth is sweet, round and the freshness is sensible. The maturity we felt by the nose is found back in the mouth as well. The bakery aromas prevail.
A delicious Champagne, easy to taste than we will enjoy of course by the aperitif. We advise you to pair it with a sweet and sour dish such as a veal with pineapple, a duck in orange sauce or even a pork in plum sauce.
Enjoy now or cellar until 2025
