SLEEK and STEELY
The 2017 vintage, a Méthode Tradionnelle Blanc de Blanc, is highlighted with aromas of tart apple spritzed with grapefruit supported by toasted nuances. An electric buzz of acidity is punctuated by flavours suggesting Granny Smith apple, citrus ( lemon, lime ). An upbeat swish of bubbles. BRUT-ifull stuff!
Notre Cuvée Peter H. 2017, élaborée 100% avec du chardonnay, développe des arômes de tarte aux pommes et d’agrumes avec une note grillée. En bouche des saveurs de pomme Granny Smith, de citron et citron vert. Un bel équilibre grâce à une légère sucrosité qui laisse s’exprimer une élégante acidité.
