Description

Appearance: Deep and bright salmon pink color

Aromatics: Fresh, delicate nose, fruity and young (with strawberries and rhubarb), but evolving towards notes that show a few months aging in the cellar. There’s also a nice floral accent.

Palate: Up front, the wine shows mostly textural, with a generous, mouth-filling mousse showing creamy yet refreshing bubbles. The brut nature effect (no residual sugar) gives focus to the fruity aromatics, making it feel like a background soundtrack played at a low volume. Those aromatic elements carry to an energetic finish with a well-integrated hint of bitterness. This extra brut sparkling wine is made to showcase the food on the table. A wonderfully well crafted wine, coherently expressing typical local grape varieties, with a fresh character reminiscent of strawberry and cranberry.

Focused without being overdone. Mineral without being neutral or bland.

Pairings: It’s when you have it with food that the wine shows what it’s all about. Pretty versatile for pairings, it’s particularly good with early summer dishes. Porc/white meat skewers grilled on the barbecue, shtimp or halloumi cheese mixed with grilled vegetables (peppers, red onion, cherry tomatoes and zucchini) and lardons. All it needs is a dish with a bit of richness (aka some fat!) and some grill marks to create a great contrasting match, thanks to its freshness and the bubbly texture.
