Its deep gold color is defined by a fine and magnificent effervescence. These pearls create a white cordon on the surface. The powerful bouquet reveals aromas of black cherries, blood orange, Chinese aniseed and menthol. Shortly after, a more complex character is appearing with notes of pastry, cooked butter and passion fruit with discreet floral aromas. A remarkable attack develops on your palate with the right balance of freshness and richness. A hint of acidity is enhancing notes of butter and dry fruit. The aromatic persistence is underlined by a sour finish.

Wine Spectator

Reveals a rapierlike spine of acidity that defines flavors of dried cherry, walnut oil, preserved lemon and pain d'├ępices, which have greater impact up front and through the midpalate, echoing quietly yet persistently on the finish.
