This is an abundant and delicious harvest, this 2006 Blanc de Blancs Vintage recalls the scents of calissons and candied orange peel. Harmony and generosity are combined. Elegant wine that can be appreciated as an aperitif, but also at the table.
Assemblage: Made exclusively from the first pressing - the purest - of Chardonnay from the best wines of Champagne.
Maturation: 9 years to 12 months after disgorgement yeasts.
Dosage: Extra brut: 5g
EYE: intense and bright gold with green reflections, fantastic effervescence
NOSE: a strong nose dominated by citrus (lemon / mandarin) and sweet almond. After a few seconds, it recalls the aromas of calissons and candied orange peel.
MOUTH light attack, very fine perlage, the amplitude is gradually revealing the generosity of the wine. The ripe fruit and minerality is balanced with subtlety.
