Tasting comments :

With its very clear yellow colour, this wine has extremely fine bubbles which form a beautiful halo around the edge of the glass. The GRAND VINTAGE boasts a nose of fine, fresh fruit accented with hints of almond. Finely-balanced on the palate, with a remarkable aromatic explosion followed by a long, fresh and fruity finish.
