Grey-gold in colour with gleaming glints, Princesse de France presents light, airy bubbles.
A first impression of vegetal notes gives way to aromas of fresh fruit and a delightful tangy sensation. The finish is warm and elegant with hints of candied fruit reminiscent of pear.
The initial charming liveliness is followed by an agreeable softness. Notes of grapefruit meld with juicy and finely tangy pear. Princesse de France is a frank, mature wine and is characteristic of its terroir.
A subtle blend of the three Champagne grape varieties, Princesse de France combines the strong character of Pinot Noir - which represents the largest proportion - the sweet fruitiness of Meunier and the lively elegance of Chardonnay. Crafted according to true Champagne tradition, benefitting from the know-how of a renowned winemaking team that pays attention to every detail.
Serve as an aperitif or with a light dinner. Will also enhance fruit desserts with its lively freshness.
Champagne & Sparkling Wines
The secret to Champagne bubbles comes from the addition of a special mixture of sugar and wine called the ‘liqueur d’expedition’. This is what makes the bubbles. Sparkling wines have bubbles and high acidity and range from white, rosé to red in colour. Sparkling wines have been long associated as a celebratory beverage, but actually match with a wide variety of foods.
