"A touch of lemon appears on the nose. The palate is light and frothy, with easy freshness and lively citrus and apple fruit. The finish is dry. Drink soon." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Light yellow with green reflections and fine, glittering pearl beads; the nose offers aromas of galia melon, sweet woodruff and dried mango, with minerals and hints of nuts. The soft mousseux leaves a pleasant feeling on the palate, accompanied by a racy, powerful body and crisp, lemony acidity that brings freshness to this Crémant. With time in the glass, it opens further to a complex sparkling brut, finishing with a long aftertaste.
