Appearance: Pale yellow with silver tinges, brilliant and crystal clear revealing a persistent ribbon of delicate bubbles. Nose: Initially restrained, fresh white fruit aromas of apple, pear and peach intermingle with curry and turmeric spices. As the bouquet becomes more expressive, ripe fruit notes jostle for position. Palate: Clean on the attack, elegant and complex, a delicate bead imparts freshness on the finish. Food and wine pairings: Aperitif: Smoked salmon crostini. Starter: Pan-fried king prawns with coriander. Main: Pigeon tagine and quince, served with bulgar wheat. Dessert: Rhubarb Tarte Tatin.
Lightly floral and fresh, this offers pretty notes of ripe Gala apple and glazed apricot, layered with subtle hints of almond paste, piecrust, honey and ground spice. Shows fine balance and a lively mousse, leading to a lingering finish. Drink now through 2018. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
One of the best-selling Champagnes in the world, this is a blend of the three main Champagne grapes. It is elegant and fruity, with a soft, balanced character that makes it very drinkable. White fruits are cut with lemon acidity that gives a lively, crisp aftertaste.
