Cuvée Supérieure tasting notes :
To the eye
The champagne has a pale golden yellow colour with bright yellow-green glints that give depth to the flute. Relatively fluid in appearance, it is filled with delicate, light bubbles that create a delicate bead.
To the nose
The first nose reveals scents of white peach, candied pear, fresh butter, lime blossom and brioche. On aeration of the wine, it changes to clear notes of wet chalk, apricot, yellow peach, green apple with hints of peppermint. Further aeration reveals scents of lemon, sweet almond and pineapple.
On the palate
The first impression is supple and fresh with a smooth, velvety effervescence. The wine develops on the palate with a burst of fresh and crispy white and yellow fruits. The champagne possesses an elegant limestone minerality and a lemony acidic tang, heightened by accents of yellow grapefruit zest. This freshness lasts until the airy finish, marked by a lingering aromatic aftertaste of peppermint, green tea, lime blossom and chalk.
