On the nose: fine and fruity. There are aromas of pear with clear flesh and dried fruits - hazelnut, almond. Then notes of white flowers, escorted with aromas of Viennese pastries and buttered brioche.
A bright and clear yellow color with gold reflections. Beautiful brightness, the effervescence is sustained, with a cord very present.
The first nose is fresh and fruity, with notes of white fruit (pear, pink apple), apricot and hazelnuts and fresh almonds. Some floral and spicy notes add extra complexity.
The second nose reveals a beautiful olfactory intensity, on a background more brioche and biscuit.
