While ageing will let it fully express its plush summery temperament, the 2012 vintage already promises both a vibrant and a precise tasty experience.

Its golden robe recalls the sun’s glints gleaming over the Mediterranean Sea. The golden, crystalline bubbles of this lush vintage glow in the glass.
The initial nose delivers fresh citrus notes of lime or tangerine leaves, reminiscent of a summer on the Mediterranean shores. Its solar accents are then enhanced by warm, smoked notes. A touch of almond then offers a voluptuous, vivid vibrancy.
Notes of pomegranate and almond open with the expression of a plush texture of smoked tea or freshly harvested honey, the juice of ripe black cherry and blueberries. The long, silky finish is perfect both as a prelude or the accompaniment to a gourmet meal.
