This traditional, bottle-fermented, classic French varieties give this wine a creamy mousse, a fruity and harmonious taste and good length focussed on freshness. hand-picking, the grapes were whole bunch pressed to obtain the finest juice. The wine was then left to mature on its lees for at least 18 months, with a further 2 months in the bottle after dosage.
