Besserat de Bellefon Blanc de Blancs

0.00

THE BLEND
100% Chardonnay

COMBINATIONS
A Champagne for great occasions, it is an ideal accompaniment to light and sophisticated dishes such as a scallop carpaccio, peppered foie gras on gingerbread toast or a verrine of sea-bream with a tomato reduction.

TASTING
Appearance
 The color is a supremely pure, bright yellow. The froth is composed of light bubbles which leave a moderate ring.

Fragrance The nose is intense, with fresh citrus notes blending harmoniously with floral notes (honeysuckle and acacia) and toasted aromas.

Taste A structured and ample mouthfeel. The minerality of Chardonnay blends superbly with the hints of dried fruit (apricot) and honeyed notes. The finish is fresh, lingering and light.
