Appearance: sockeye salmon with a tinge of copper. Very fine, persistent mousse. On the nose, intense red fruit, yeast, Chambord liqueur, hint of buttery biscuit. Quite rich on the palate, medium plus body, slight vinous at first. (I found that I enjoyed the wine even more when it's a bit flat the day after. The bubbles probably accentuated the alcohol. Try a quick decant just before serving. Finish quite long with notes of mineral. Good acidity backbone. Cheville (peg-shaped) cork indicating it should be consumed within a few years before it lets in the oxygen.
pale salmon color, a bit of yeast and dried flowers on the nose, fine bubbles, red cherry and cranberry flavors are carried by a zesty mouthful of mineral nuances, tart acidity, the structured body keeps the mouth watery, this is delicious and has structure to age well
