Serving and food pairings

We will serve this Cuvée at a temperature of 10 or even 12 degrees in a well-shaped flûte to favor its aromatic expression. We will taste it as an aperitif or during an exceptional evening. At the table, it will be the sea: shells, grilled fish, seafood risotto, saffron or vegetable ravioli, lobster...
We can continue with goat's milk cheeses, a Selles-sur-Cher or a Valençay.

Visual analysis 

This Blanc de Blancs has a very light yellow-green color. The effervescence of fine bubbles is very active and ends its run by creating a pretty halo on the surface. The presentation is very attractive.

Olfactory analysis 

The first nose is discreet, still shy. We can gradually perceive aromas of citrus fruits, vegetables and bread. After few minutes of aeration, the expression evolves towards lime, rape honey, as well as a smell of cobblestone. It is an adolescent nose, which will soon assert its identity.
After twenty minutes in the flûte, the air tightness is perfect. The wine is in full health and expresses itself more and more, proving its great potential.

Taste analysis 

The attack is precise. The effervescence and its subtly appealing character mark the rhythm of the tasting. The acidity brings a certain tension and smoothes the body of the wine.
The whole offers us a magnificent structure but at the same time fine, caressing, cold and slightly tense, like taffeta. Aromas of almond, fresh honey and pear enrich this beautiful wine.
Warming up on the palate this sensation is rounded by the dosage which brings a very tasty touch.

The final 

The finish is long (8 seconds of persistence), and chalky. We perceive a hint of bitterness, as well as a saline touch that supports the acidic freshness and the slight sweetness of the dosage. The finish offers us all four elemental flavors.
