Beautiful golden color and delicate fine bubbles. Aromas of blackcurrant, red currant, strawberry, dried fruit, grilled almonds, quince and plums. On the palate there's notes of raspberry, crushed strawberry with a rich texture and a biscuity flavor on the finish. The finish is surprisingly long and balanced.
Enjoy as an aperitif or pair with foie gras, casserole, red fruit tart.
