Description

Lifted red berry perfume of raspberries and fresh strawberries, together with more complex notes of strawberry jam on brioche toast. The palate is richly creamy with red apples, red nectarine skin and fine persistent bead. Great length and mouth filling texture balanced with fine acidity. A food matching sparkling wine with nuance and intrigue.
