Description

The cuvée is transferred into pressure tanks to referment at the particularly low temperature of 16 °C in order to preserve the aromatic potential of the base wine. It takes about a month for the wine to acquire the desired pressure and residual sugar. Once refermentation has been inhibited, the wine stays in the pressure tank in contact with the lees for about another three months before it is prepared for bottling.

Sensory & emotional characteristics

A green-flecked star-bright straw yellow ushers in fragrances of peach and acacia blossom mingling with rennet apple and pear-led white-fleshed fruits. Invigorating freshness and a vibrant, caressing mouthfeel are framed by persistent streams of tiny bubbles that prolong and expand the rich array of sensory perceptions on the palate.

Food Pairing

An excellent aperitif, the ideal partner for elaborate starters and an outstanding accompaniment for crustaceans or top-quality fish.
