Nose of ripe fruit, combining apple, small red fruits and lemon, with hints of brioche and honey. Juicy and tangy mouth, accompanied by a lively and fine bubble. Final salivating on citrus fruits.

Very fresh nose, mixing pink grapefruit, red berries, fresh bread and notes of custard. On the palate, the texture is creamy while remaining airy thanks to an extra-crude dosage. Nice acidulated tension, perfectly integrated. The finish is light and long, supported by a delicate tannic touch. A very beautiful extra-brut rosé champagne, both racy and fruity. »(The Best French Wines 2016 – Gault Millau)
