Tasting notes

 

  • Color : Bright and limpid yellow, fine and numerous bubbles

  • Palate : Soft but steady with a delicious fizzy taste, and a lively grapefruit and red orange hint.
  • Food pairing : Served at 6 to 8 °C before lunch and dinner, but will be also great with sushis, smoked salmon, red tuna tartare, fresh goat cheeses, Parma ham and fishes for a very refined meal.
