Tasting Notes
Beautiful green highlights, a slight golden tint and fine bubbles evoke the elegance of the Millésime 2011. A rare year for its extraordinary weather conditions, with sunshine and rainfall playing a major role. Its bouquet expresses the minerality from this exceptional year, and its notes of white-fleshed orchard fruit lead into a finish on fine, subtle toasted notes.

As well as an aperitif, it is ideal with refined dishes such as pan-fried scallops or a tournedos of beef with fresh, seasonal vegetables.
