A 100% Chardonnay that matures sur lie in the bottle a minimum of 24 months, it is easily recognizable for its seductive creaminess;
subtle bead of pin-point bubbles; and ultra-flavor some palate.
APPEARANCE: soft, creamy mousse with long-lasting cordon around the glass; fine, lingering bead.
COLOUR: intense straw-yellow.
BOUQUET: elegant, rich and multi-layered with fragrances of peach, apricot and tropical fruit, gradually more emphatic, before yielding to notes of candied citrus fruit.
