A sparkling wine from the southwest of France composed of 60% Chardonnay, 30% Chenin Blanc and 10% Mauzac made in the methode tradionelle way. It is dry. Pale golden in color with a nice mousse of very small bubbles. Clear and bright. The nose is nice with green apples and a bit of brioche. Medium bodied. Good acidity. On the palate, the green apples carry thru with a bit of underlying char. Nice finish. This is very food friendly and will go with just about anything. Drink over the next couple of years.
