On the nose, undertones of Granny Smith apples, honeysuckle, strawberry and toasted brioche. On the palate, the perfect balance of dryness, acidity and fruit. It lingers nicely with a bit of Meyer lemon, honeydew and continuing with an apple finish. A wine with great length, crispness and refreshing taste.
A versatile accompaniment that is very cuisine and cocktail friendly. Try it with savory hors d’oeuvres, buttered popcorn, creamy
pasta dishes, fried chicken, spicy Asian dishes, seafood, fruit based desserts or semi-soft cheese.

Appreciated worldwide as an iconic token of celebration and luxury, sparkling wines from France come in more forms than just Champagne. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from the northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Champagne’s chalky, limestone and soils and cold, continental climate create grapes with ample acidity and concentration. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier are permitted for use in Champagne.
French sparkling wines made outside of Champagne take the name Crémant. Crémant de Bourgogne, Alsace, Loire and Limoux are the best known. These are made using the same technique as that of Champagne, called méthode traditionelle, but typically are composed of the regional grape variety. Usually dry to off-dry with bright acidity, these are often characterized by qualities of lemon, peach, marzipan and white flowers.
