Codorniu Reina Maria Cristina Blanc de Noirs 2014
An intense straw yellow colour with very lively golden highlights and purplish hues typical of the Pinot Noir varietal. A fine delicate well integrated mousse with perfect effervescence forming a uniform and persistent crown.
An exquisite bouquet of white flowers on the nose with fruity notes such as raspberry, redcurrant and strawberry, the most emblematic nuances of Pinot Noir. These aromas re-emerge on the palate, with a full-bodied mouthfeel exhibiting notable freshness. Creamy, delicate with a long finish.
