Les Vignes Dieu - Blanc de blancs 2012 - Champagne Bonnet-Ponson

Discreet and airy at first, the nose is progressively enriched of white flowers notes, acacia honey and pear. The attack shows a great tonicity of citrus leading to a chiseled and deep texture in mouth and added with flavors of white fruit and brioche. The final sensation persists on notes of pastries, bread toasted and an elegant empyreumatic touch.
