An extremely fine, effusive mousse carries mouthwatering aromas of crisp, ripe apple, Asian pear, Meyer lemon and brioche emanating from this elegant wine. On the palate, the wine is almost lush, full and creamy yet clean and refreshing, with beautifully integrated flavors of ripe pear, lemon meringue, vanilla and lovely mineral notes on a fresh, well balanced and enduring finish.
An exquisite accompaniment to a wide variety of appetizers from sashimi to roasted nuts, grilled prawns to fresh crab to caviar, this wine also matches splendidly with a host of cheeses, like triple cream Brie and Fontina, and has the structure, complexity and acidity to pair with an entire menu.
The vintage was a very good one for Gloria Ferrer and especially for their Chardonnay, which forms the basis of this bottling. It’s a rich sparkler, dryish and elegant, with flavors of lime, pear, dough, honey and vanilla.
