This wine is a value sparkling brut, made with Airen grapes (so it is Blanc de Blancs) from the South of France, not too far away from the Spanish border (next to the Pyrenees).
The perlage is fine and elegant. It has aromas of fruits, mostly apples and pears. It is fruity, light, and fresh with a soft and elegant and balanced mouthfeel and a nice refreshing acidity.
The bubbles are obtained using the Charmat method, named after Eugene Charmat, where the second fermentation takes places in a large, closed pressurized tank. It is different from the Methode Champenoise as the secondary fermentation doesn't take place in the bottle.
Residual Sugar 11g/liter.
On its own as an aperitif or with delicate fish (pike or bass).
