Appearance: Yellow ivory in appearance, clear and bright. Its fine and delicate bubbles crackle gently, revealing the persistent and majestic liveliness of the effervescence. Nose: White flower aromas of hawthorn and acacia, and honey, initially characterise the nose. Gaining in intensity, spicy notes of black pepper and ginger and red fruits combine subtly with the primary aromas. Palate: Clean and direct on the attack, with a delicate mousse revealing a highly attractive mineral quality. The wine boasts impressive structure with an imposing finish and appealing length. Food and wine pairings: The Classic: Aperitif, seafood tapas. The Unexpected: Large shrimps with rose petals, rustic sauce vierge. The European: Grilled seabass. The Asian: Sushi with chervil, honey and sesame seeds. The American: Carrot and cumin muffin.

Hints of toffee and anise run through the fresh quince paste, coffee, pastry and candied orange peel flavors in this supple Champagne, which sports a rich flavor profile in a restrained package, with a smoky note echoing on the finish. Drink now through 2016. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

This dry, crisp wine is balanced, finely integrated, packed with grapefruit and green apple flavors. There is just a sign of maturing in its toastiness, giving some richness to the otherwise steely texture. A success.
