Characteristics: Creamy mousse with very fine bubbles. Nose is straight forward: freshly pressed pinot noir grapes with hints of citrus and red fruit. Corpulant flavor, full bodied and meaty. Notes of butter and fresh honey. The fruit aromas are heightened by a very pleasant crispness. A really clean Champagne that is the opposite of classic Blanc de Noir, which can be too heavy or too powerful.
