The Champagne is flavorful and rich, bursting with ripe golden apples, hints of lemon zest and curd, baked bread notes, amid an elegant and creamy texture. The chalky minerality is there adding to the power, complexity and finesse of this wine. Pair with fish, shellfish, fried chicken, potato dishes.
