Tasting Notes

A méthode traditionnelle Tokay dry champagne (sparkling wine) with a pale hay yellow hue. Appealing notes of apple and pear complemented by a classic yeast character. The aromas typical of Hárslevelű and the aromas associated with the méthode champenoise are beautifully melded. A firm beam of acidity enlivens the palate. This is an attractively light wine that exhibits notes of rich mousse, tree fruits, citrus and yeast aromas.

Food Pairing Recommendation

This dry sparking wine is a great example of the virtues of the traditional style making it the perfect choice for special occasions. It is also our recommend drink accompaniment to go along with our Siberian Sturgeon Caviar.
