On the nose, intense aromas of spiced biscuit, acacia flowers dominate, followed by assertive notes of fig and plum.
It is bright and equally intense on the palate, with brioche and peach notes giving way to citrus fruits. These are followed by softer nutty flavours, and notes of acacia honey and forest fruits. The finish is long, with a wonderful freshness that will keep you reaching for your glass.
Served with gougères, the Brut Premier Cru makes an excellent aperitif. It also has the personality to accompany white meat dishes and bright sauces, such as guinea fowl with citrus, while remaining delicate enough to pair with fish such as sea bass or zander. The fruity notes will also work well alongside a dessert, for example a chilled rice pudding or a fruit salad.
