    SENSORY CHARACTERISTICS

    The colour is dense, with a golden glow enlivened with delicate, very fine bubbles.
    A nose full of freshness with candied citrus, notes of chestnut honey, hazelnut and roasted almond followed by tobacco, truffle and toasted bread aromas.
    A rich, silky texture on the palate, concentrated with notes of toast and spice. The finish has great length combining freshness and complexity.
    Best served between 10° and 12°C.
