On the eye: Its deep gold color is defined by a fine and magnificent effervescence. These pearls create a white cordon on the surface.

On the nose: The powerful bouquet reveals aromas of black cherries, blood orange, Chinese aniseed and menthol. Shortly after, a more complex character is appearing with notes of pastry, cooked butter and passion fruit with discreet floral aromas.

On the palate: A remarkable attack develops on your palate with the right balance of freshness and richness. A hint of acidity is enhancing notes of butter and dry fruit. The aromatic persistence is underlined by a sour finish.


An overly complex food pairing should be avoided to keep the wine's balance. It texture and mature aromatic profile go well with caviar or with dishes with a firm texture (lobster, white meats) and reduced sauces.
