Tasting
Colour: Pale, fine and persistent bubble and yellow.
Icon nose 176020a5140d2499a7f0e61d28ba9873d09e3af9dca561aeb6a91b357f650e5b Nose: A complex aroma with slightly toasted caramelized notes, some brioche and biscuit, a slight noble evolution of herbal tea with dried fruit.
Icon mouth fe9befcc324311cf7cf9e740b28462659874ebbdc4882ef64971fe9b95382c5e Mouth: In the mouth it is very thin, very elegant mousse, silky texture, vibrant with freshness, all elegance and length of tasting. A sparkling wine full of charm and character.
