An intense and satin-like pale yellow colour with flecks of green and a lively stream of tiny bubbles that provide a persistent ring of mousse. All the marks of rich, fresh wine.
The first impressions on the nose are of bergamot, almonds, lemon and blackcurrant with a hint of something more earthy and iodic. As the wine breathes, it reveals notes of mandarin pith, pomelo, acacia blossom, linden and aniseed with white peaches, quince jam, figs, cherries, plums, pomegranate and toast.
The initial sensation in the mouth is fresh and clean with a soft, creamy effervescence. The wine soon develops a fruitiness underpinned by the pleasant acidity of lemons and fleshy fruit. On the palate, there is a clay, chalk and sand minerality which lends, on the one hand, plenty of fruitiness, bite and an almost tangible breadth, and on the other hand, salinity and length on the palate that reinforces the frank, lemony overtones. The overall sensation is of perfectly controlled richness and vinosity. A delightful finish of salt and umami, with good structure and an upright character, embodied in soft spicy notes that brings a constant stream of freshness.
The Cuvée Divine combines elegance, power, richness and freshness that creates an array of aromas perfect for food.
