Crémant de Bourgogne MAGNUM
A limpid, luminous gold colour with a complex and intense nose of apples and pears with notes of acacias, apple blossom and brioche. Delicate and fine bubbles are found in this pleasurable wine with subtle flavours of white flowers and green fruit.
A wine bursting with youth and audacity. Its freshness and vigour are a matter of general agreement. Given time, it acquires the stateliness of a great wine. The brut faithfully reflects its lively and clear-cut personality.
The bubbles are fine and form a delicate necklace around the edge of the glass. Floral, citrusy and mineral aromas are matched in the mouth by freshness and elegance plus a degree of acidity which is the key to a proper balance between aromatic power and the desired degree of lightness.
