This drop-dead gorgeous sparkler is all about finesse and fragrance. It opens with enticing scents of Alpine wildflower, pear, flint and a whiff of pastry. The savory, elegant palate has an airy, weightless character, doling out ripe apple, creamy white peach, minerals and a dollop of vanilla before the dry, juicy finish. A silky perlage gives it a polished, irresistible texture.
