Cuvée Sélection Brut tasting notes :
To the eye
The champagne has a golden yellow colour with deep straw yellow glints. Relatively fluid and satiny in appearance, it is filled with delicate, light bubbles that create a delicate bead.
To the nose
The first nose opens finely on notes of candied apricot, Tatin apple, milk caramel and violet. When aired, it develops a scent of lychee, roasted pineapple, candied orange zest, rhubarb, with the addition of marmalade and damson plum.
On the palate
The first impression is supple and fresh with a smooth, velvety effervescence. The chalky mineral note associated with the fruity and brioche flavour reinforces the patina of the mid-palate. The limestone minerality combined with the bold, fruity, brioche-like finish reinforces the patina of the mid-palate. Balance is maintained by a tonic acidity that leads to an aftertaste of tropical fruits, pineapple, mango and passion fruit.
Our suggestions for pairings :
- Aperitif, gougères made with comté cheese and orange
