"A fresh aspect, with a beautiful golden yellow colour, touched by light green highlights. Its fine bubbles dance a lively, joyous ballet. The foam resembles a crystalline crown. Preserved citrus fruits, fresh hazelnuts and, above all, the fine fragrances of spring flowers, acacia, mock orange and honeysuckle offer a magnificent bouquet of great restraint and distinction. Then, its character expands, becoming riper and more exotic, revealing pineapple, lychee, roses and almonds, as well as toasted aromas. A few minutes later, the terroir emerges, mineral hints of limestone and iodine. In the mouth, the initial impact is very fresh, frank and savoury, without a hint of 'bite', and this is accompanied by an uplifting and 'crispy' effervescence. The finish is particularly distinct and mineral (limestone). It has great length, leaving a pleasant sensation that is both acidulous and chalky." - Winemaker's Notes "The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Esprit flows with layers of mineral infused fruit in a rich, textured style that captures the essential beauty and depth of Chardonnay grown in Ay. This is a beautifully balanced, precise version of the Blanc de Blancs. Warm, toasty notes linger on the impeccable finish" - Wine Advocate
