Tasting Note: Fine bead and pale yellow with green hues. White fruit aromas with delicate citrus and green almond notes. On the palate, light and fresh: a real expression of the white fruit aromas. Given its ageing on lees, we pick up notes of pastry, well-integrated bubbles and a delicate aftertaste. Bottled with zero grams residual sugar (Brut Nature).
