Light golden coloured nuance here. Medium intense mousse, quite fine bubbles. The nose is fairly intense. There is a hint of complexity and maturity here. I get some spicy notes. Some hints of pain d’épice, fresh butter. The fruit is a bit more on the windfall, ripe pear, however not without oxidation. More Pinot. Good structure here. Quite full-bodied, yet marked by a well underlined, nice level of acidity. It doesn’t appear very sweet, but there is still a noticeable dosage. I would say the mousse is well integrated, adding a creamy texture to the palate. Nice fruit. It has a nice juiciness and drinkability. Yet with slightly riper fruit there. Broader, more full-bodied style, with some maturity, some toastiness and some nuttiness on the finish. Quite long finish and really good to drink now.
