Exquisite pale pink color with reflections between raspberry and salmon. Extraordinarily fresh nose of flowers and red fruits: raspberry, strawberry, cherry and red currant. In the mouth the attack is decisive with notes of red fruits, wild strawberries, cherries and pink grapefruit. Fine and persistent perlage. Soft and delicate in the mouth. Elegant and intruiguing, this is is a very complex and structured Rosé Champenoise with a balancing very fresh acidity.
This is a bone-dry, precise wine that combines pristine fruit, vibrancy and knife-like precision.
Pair with Crustaceans, Fish-based main dishes, Fish-based pasta or rice dishes, Shellfish or just as an aperitif
