Winemakers Tasting Notes

With a light pink color, this wine offers a gentle balance between acidulated aromas with notes of white blossom and small red fruit like raspberry and redcurrant. Its fine bubbles promise a delightful roundness in the mouth, which reveals all the subtlety of Pinot Noir. Underscored by a pleasant vivacity and sustained fruit, Perle d’Aurore is a delicate Crémant de Bourgogne that can be drunk in any circumstances.
