Tasting notes

 

  • Color : Pale and limpid yellow, delicate, nice, dancing and persistant bubbles.
  • Nose : Intense and refined, honey and acacia aromas join to subtle crystallized citrus fruits hints.
  • Palate : Wonderful harmony, very good balance sugar/acidity. We can taste fruits from smelling in a persistent lenght.
  • Food pairing : Served at 6 to 8 °C, this Crémant de Limoux is delicious before lunch and dinner, but will be also great with fishes for a very refined meal
