Tasting notes

This airy Champagne with light emerald reflections is characterized by a straight and precise nose where lime and tangerine are close to flint. Its fresh and harmonious mouth reveals the minerality of flint and chalk. Its long and salivating finish is punctuated by pleasant salinity.
