The robe is golden and brilliant, with tiny longlasting bubbles.
The bouquet is fine, intense and complex. Delicious aromas of small white peaches, white flowers and slightly roasted almonds joined by some candied notes.
On the palate, the Ultime is pure, ample and of great structure. The freshness is well present and the maturity is confirmed by flavors of gingerbread and fruit marmalade.
The final is pure, astonishingly long and harmonious.
This Ultime will enhance beautiful seafood and Japanese cooking, even raw fish. A connaisseur's apéritif.

Produced only in years of great maturity, this Extra-Brut is the result of a blend favoring the richness and the expression of the three grape varieties.
No liquor at all is added “to round up” the wine before shipping : therefore it is essential to ensure that a subtle and pure harmony is achieved at the blending and allow more time than usually to mature slowly in the cellars.
