Country: France, Champagne
Tasting Notes: Delicate colour of salmon-pink rose petals. An explosion of strawberry flavours. Rich expressive notes of fresh strawberries underlined with hints of concentrated strawberry jam. A bowl of ripe strawberries covered with a spoonful of stewed strawberries with a lovely freshness. The palate is well structured with a perfect balance of freshness and roundness of fruit. It is dominated by voluptuous flavours of red fruit such as wild strawberries delivering a sweet, enveloping sensation. A beautifully accessible champagne when young, but on cellaring well it will keep or even intensify its beauty.
Varietal: Blend of Chardonnay 58%, Pinot Noir 35%, Red Wine (PN) 7
Pairing: With the last “vibrant” strawberries picked from the garden! Plump, juicy and sweet. Fruits suit it well due to their soft side, reflecting its youth. Foie gras for boldness and the quest for richness and sweetness around the base built on the wine’s strength. A partnership dominated by strength and tenderness.
