The colour is pale, lemon-gold. Bubbles are gentle tiny and numerous. On the nose it is quite discrete and although it spent 5 years on the lees it offers a lot of freshness and a fine fruity nose in the form of lime, lemons, green and yellow apples combined with subtle yeasty and roasted notes. It speaks of complexity. Very dry on the mouth, with a very delicate mousse coming from a very long ageing on the yeasts and sharp acidity lifting the wine. With a long and fine finish.
Great aperitif, but will accompany greatly most of the dishes, especially shellfish, fish, lobster, salmon, trout …
2012 was a warm, early and high-quality vintage with plenty of ripe and healthy fruit. Very similar to 2011 but a bit fresher and with more acidity.
Classic, bottle fermented, 60 months ageing on the lees.
It is perfect now but will be in perfect shape for at least six more years. Drink 2019-2024.
