Tasting comments :

Distinguished by its yellow tones and flashes of green, this beautiful, shimmering wine produces very small bubbles, which are both concentrated and persistent. It has a very refined nose, with very pleasant fruity aromas blessed with both delicacy and complexity. On the palate, the VINTAGE Dry White is lively and fresh, with a harmonious balance of citrus notes building to a long-lasting, refreshing finish.
