Region: AOC Côte Chalonnaise
Color: Pale yellow and brilliant.
Aroma: Fresh Fruit, floral with hints of fescue.
Tasting Notes: Light and airy with vivid images of dry melon fruits, granny smith apples, with a balancing flintiness.
Food Pairings: Sushi, shrimp dumplins, blinis and buttermilk pancakes.
Grape Variety: Chardonnay, Aligote and Pinot Blanc

Vinification: Methode Traditionelle with all the same steps as AOC Champagne, stainless steel first fermentation with second fermentation in the bottle. The appellation calls for proportions dictated by harvests each year, with Chardonnay often being the main varietal in the blend.
Notes/Facts: A successful marriage for this Vin Mousseux (meaning Picamelot can bring in other white grapes from its neighbors) with the finesse of Chardonnay, the subtle wine fruits of Pinot Blanc, and the liveliness of Aligote.
