During the last week of August, grapes are hand-picked in the
evening to preserve freshness and vinified separately. Ageing on the less for 11 months. The second fermentation in the bottle in the underground cellar.
Pale yellow with vivid greenish reflections, fine persistent bubbles. Intense aromas of pear and apples, notes of lime and white flowers.
Fresh on the palate with well integrated acidity, leaving long floral tastes.
Wonderful for celebrations, but also pairs with
salads, steamed mussels, crab and light fish courses.
