Off-dry, workhorse Charmat sparkler with strawberry and pale red berry tones, slight acidity and refreshing end. Food-flexible and easy-drinking.
This blend of Pinot Gris, Sauv Blanc, Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay hits the mark for being light, clean, juicy and refreshing. Un-oak treatment ensures a floral, apple, citrus and grassy character. Lees contact confers some mid-palate richness. Mineral notes shiver on the finish. A match for mild curry dishes.
Lifted aromas of tropical and orchard fruits precede a generous, mouth-filling palate of white peach and pineapple with fresh acidity countered by assertive oak through a firm end.
Nutty, toast and stone fruit on the nose plus fine bubbles and a persistent mousse, before a rich and creamy palate with apple and pear notes.
Light ruby. Typical Pinot Noir nose of red fruits (strawberry, raspberry) with a touch of vanilla from the oak. Sweet attack, good core of fruity extract turning firm as the tannins show their grip in the clean finish. Drink now with grilled red meat.
Bright green herb and grapefruit scents yield to delicate citrus and green fruit with a touch of tropical fruit in the mouth. Balanced, medium weight with a clean, lightly mineral note on the finish. Steady reliable value.
The Saint Bris district is located within Burgundy’s appellation but it doesn’t grow Chardonnay. It produces Sauvignon Blanc. The wine is very pale in colour with green apple, lemon and cut-grass notes on the nose. Light on the palate, it offers grapefruit and gooseberry flavours with tangy acidity.
