Description

The delicate, persistent bubbles and golden straw color with a hint of salmon are harbingers of great things to come. You will detect hints of red apple, strawberry and brioche on the nose. The palate offers up gorgeous strawberry and cranberry flavors tempered by mineral notes and a delicious yeasty/pastry dough element as a result of extended time laying en tirage.
