Tasting notes

This elegant Champagne with light amaranth nuances is characterized by a precise nose where the redcurrant and the raspberry harmonize with the minerality of the chalk. Its fresh and salivating mouth brings out notes of red berries with subtlety as well as some sweet spices. Its long finish is characterized by the nobility of a slight hint of bitterness.
