Fine, petite bubbles.
Colour: rich, butterscotch gold
Nose: clotted cream & lime sorbet with toast & chai tea. Soft mushroom notes as well.
Palate: rich, elegant & slightly austere, this hides some of the fruit. Very dry & long with nice floral edges. Superb with wild smoked salmon. Very much my sort of Champagne - refined, elegant & slightly herby with texture & class. A delight.
