Vignobles Percier Bel Air l’Espérance Crémant, Sparkling Wine from Bordeaux
Overall Tasting Notes & Impressions
Lemon aromas, it offers plenty both to the nose and to the palate. The bursting notes of fresh pineapple, green apple, and apricot complement them for an explosion of acidic fruit as you taste, a firework of rather intense and concentrated flavors.
It’s a bubbly in a dry style overall, but its rich oily texture and hints of residual sugars make for a balanced and generous experience.
The finish throws this balance off slightly, with drying phenolics and a hint of greenness. Some will appreciate and enjoy this aspect in this Crémant though, as it brings a savory bitterness, and pairs well with the burst of apple flavors that finishes the tasting, like after biting in a granny smith apple (that’s the green ones type).
A pleasant and interesting tasting experience, for a fresh and fruity burst of dry and tasty sensations in a bubbly of relatively medium but enjoyable finesse.
