Tasting by Delphin CORNAILLE h2>
A l'Oei! : Golden yellow, Luminous
Before aeration, we are in the presence of pretty ripe and frank small fruits, candied apricot, as well as notes of macerated red fruits such as blueberry marmalade, Maras des bois strawberry ...
After aeration confirms the sharpness of the dominant fruit aromas but also a slight smoky empyreumatic presence.
In the mouth : We have a wine with a beautiful vinic dimension. A bubble with a discreet presence.
Regarding the aromas, we find all the aromatic palette that we had on the nose, with a development around stone fruits such as nectarine and apricot.
General comment. < / strong>
We are in the presence of a champagne with a great vinic dimension and a subtle structure of bubbles . For this wine the flavors are consistent between the nose and the mouth! Yellow fruits, White fruits, Red fruits as well as a slight empyreumatic presence complete this rich palette! We can thus detect the blueberry marmalade, small Maras de bois strawberries, nectarines, nectarines, roasted peaches.
All this register of fruit at good maturity and above all, full of gluttony!
A harmonious, balanced wine, a well-blended dosage and a very good length!
Especially not to serve too cold, around 9/10 o c would be appreciable ...
Excellent Tasting !
Here a subtle combination of structure, aromas of ripe fruit, a beautiful controlled liveliness and great length!
