It has a beautiful, pale gold colour, emitting a constant procession of fine, regular and persistent bubbles in the glass. On the nose it is lively with a hint of delicate white flowers which evolve towards aromas of buttered brioche.

This Demi-Sec champagne is full-flavored and is a reference for its perfect balance between sugar, alcohol and acidity.  Ideal when served with patisseries or chocolate cake, it also turns a brioche afternoon snack into a unique experience.

91pts International Wine Cellar– N/V vintage

Light yellow. Aromas of poached pear, honey and buttered toast, plus a hint of white peach that gains strength with air. Fleshy, broad and appealingly sweet but in no way cloying, offering juicy orchard fruit and melon flavors and a touch of bitter peach pit.

A buttery quality comes up on the finish, which clings with strong fruity intensity. I imagine that this opulent, fruity but focused Champagne would do wonders with practically any cheese out there, especially salty, washed rind and blue versions.
