This wine has a deep golden colour, with amber reflections and a fine, fast and persistent lather. The first nose of vine blossom, lime blossom and fresh lightly toasted bread. On aeration, nose of red fruits, citrus fruits and honey. Beautiful wine attack, fruity (redcurrant, raspberry, ripe grape) and robust, ample and long. The finish brings a light note of biscuit and freshly baked bread.
The purest expression of the Philipponnat style.
This wine keeps its balance and vivacity for about two years under good aging conditions. The wine then evolves for at least another five years towards more complexity and roundness.
As an aperitif, served chilled (8°C). Perfect with white meats, poultry and fine cold or hot deli meats. But also on cold buffets, fish and seafood.
