Tasting Notes

The golden colour and sparkling tints of this wine give us a clue as to its rich, complex nose of preserved fruit (lemon peel), peach jam and white pepper. A rich yet suave palate develops around an acidic framework – the telltale sign of the best Pacherencs.

Food Matches

A noble aromatic expression and a natural liveliness make this cuvee the perfect accompaniment to foie gras and blue cheeses such as Roquefort. A subtle, simple pairing can also be made with slightly sharp puddings such as lemon tart.
