...rich with notes of white flowers & crème patissière.... crisp, fresh and delicate with a lovely creamy texture. It is elegant, refined and very stylish... a pleasant combination of power and concentration blended with finesse & elegance.
An elegant, creamy Champagne, with pretty apple blossom and spice notes leading to finely meshed flavors of ripe white cherry, whole-grain toast and spun honey, framed by fresh, citrusy acidity.
Highly perfumed bouquet displays pear, nectarine, honeysuckle and sweet butter, plus an undercurrent of spice, ginger and lemon pith adding energy.
A blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier & Pinot Noir, ripe, well-balanced, some toast that adds complexity & richness to the apple & lemon fruit, indicating a mature bottling... in a gold-foil bottle is one of five made by the Cattier house...
Much more impressive than the rosé in terms of autolytic character, and there’s more fruit definition too. Good, lengthy finish. Honeyed but dry.
