A fine mousse and golden hue to this bubble. The nose is elegant, showing pear, apple, bacon fat, almond and brioche notes. The palate is dry, but the acidity doesn’t overwhelm. It’s there, there is plenty of freshness, but the dosage did its job of taming it slightly. The finish is elegant and slightly honeyed. A more elegant and reserved example over the 2012. Have with all things salty like potato chips (there are truffle versions), popcorn, French fries, or cheese gougeres. My favourite pairing with proper sparkling is a minimalist beef tartare on gourmet potato chip.
