(2006 Vintage) The color is light yellow with lovely golden highlights, while the bubbles are very fine, forming an excellent bead of effervescence. The nose is delicious and mineral, revealing notes of candied raspberries and strawberries and fresh hazelnuts. The attack is lively and fresh, with excellent structure. Notes of dried fruit appear, followed by touches of rosemary and chopped parsley. The finish is long, revealing pastry notes such as brioche and buttered bread.
