    SENSORY CHARACTERISTICS

    A bright, vibrant pale yellow colour with a steady stream of fine bubbles.
    A generous nose with pastry-like notes of hazelnuts, fresh butter and warm croissant.
    The wine offers an elegant attack, is tense and balanced between acidity and salinity. The finish is silky and very persistent.
    Best served between 10° and 12°C.
