The first aspect that pleases the eye when tasting this champagne is it's intense colour with strong golden reflections. Effervescence is particularly and persistent.
On the nose, the first impression is one of fruitiness: elegant notes of ripe fruit, dried fruit, spices and Viennese pastries come to the fore in an intense, complex bouquet. The presence of Chardonnay adds a delicate, floral touch (dried flowers).
In the mouth, the wine's supplementary ageing bestows additional roundness and aromatic intensity. Toasted notes are present in abundance (toast, praline) as well as a few warmer hints reminiscent of gingerbread and honey. The balance between structure and freshness is perfect.
The Saint Petersbourg Cuvée is a superb wine to drink as an apéritif. It's unique bouquet, which is the result of the specific ageing and dosage it has undergone, will delight those connoisseurs who love champagne with character.
