VINTAGE INFORMATION: Winter 2007 was mild with a lot of rain. Spring continued with normal conditions whereas summer was very cool and quite rainy. The rain stopped in autumn to the great satisfaction of the pickers but temperatures remained quite cool. The seasonal conditions of 2007 were quite similar to 1998.
TASTING NOTES: Made only in years of exceptional harvest, this wine has a lovely golden color with yellow tints and a delicate effervescence. The nose is marked by caramelized apple, peach, and some toasted notes, developing orange zest aromas. The palate begins with a pure first taste, then the feel of a very attractive minerality which characterizes this vintage, and a nice creamy mousse. Hints of bitter orange, golden apple, and citrus such as grapefruit.
FOOD PAIRING: Aperitif, fruit salad, blue cheese, apple crumble, charlotte aux fraises.
