Overall Tasting Notes & Impressions
This Alsace sparkling wine comes with an elegant, slightly-pale a lemon-yellow color, looking quite mat and a little grey, yet shiny. For an overall glamorous and tempting appearance.
The nose is rather elegant too, upfront fruity and floral aromas, filled with primary aromas of peach, lemon grass, and chamomile.
Soft and smooth a texture, with a crisp acidity balanced by an oily body and obvious residual sugars, for a dry and crisp yet silk-like whole.
Bursting flavors of fresh lemon and peach jam, elderflower and lily. Very floral and fruity an expression for a dry sparkling wine, delivered with a bright and precise finesse and elegance.
