Delicate pink colour with slightly blue glints. Lively stream of fine bubbles. The pure, precise bouquet mingles sweet flowers (honeysuckle and lily), slightly acid red fruits (redcurrant, wild strawberry) and citrus zest (mandarin). Warm, deeply reassuring and inviting notes then appear with a smokiness and ripeness typical of Louis Roederer. Precision and purity are echoed on the palate with a crunchy, mature attack of Pinot Noir from the south-facing Cumières slopes, escorted by the almost acid freshness of the Chardonnays from the north-facing Chouilly slopes. After aerating for a few moments, the mid-palate comes together in a unique, rounded whole. The flavours of ripe, juicy fruit blend in a texture that is both smooth and fresh, free from heaviness. A sensation of finesse and elegance in the long finish.
