Straw colour and quite youthful with slightly green tinge and vivid medium sized bubbles. Pure nose. Still quite youthful there with apple, pear, citrus, lime, a hint of fresh almond. No oak, no oxidation what so ever. Good bite on the palate here. A slimmer style, slightly more Chardonnay driven, perhaps. In terms of taste here, with yellow apple pear, citrus. There is not any toastiness yet, but there is still a slight hint of nuttiness. Good creaminess all along, well integrated bubbles. Quite high acidity and quite low dosage. Overall well balanced with a fairly long finish. And I would call it nicely made in a lighter style. Perhaps rather Chardonnay driven with a good drinkability right now.

Tasted by the Best Sommelier of the World, Andreas Larsson.
