What experts say  
  
“An elegant 2011. Behind the bright golden color, the nose is full, almost pastry with notes of white fruit and marzipan, in a radiant aromatic structure. The palate, unsurprisingly, punctuates is tonic and generous. Perfect with a grilled Turbot."
  
  
 
2* “Chardonnay is the main grape (80%) in this extra-brut from the beautiful 2008 vintage. The limpid golden colour is crossed by fine bubbles that exalt a complex and delicate nose: vanilla, white flowers, honey and fruits come with elegance. Palate is balanced, melted and smooth ending in a long and fresh finish." (2008 Vintage)
