Grape varieties : Chardonnay 90%, Chenin and Pinot Noir 10%.
The Maison SALASAR, located in the Upper Aude Valley at Campagne sur Aude, was founded in 1890.
The grapes are entirely hand-picked and placed in crates of 350kg. They are gently pressed and fermented at controlled temperatures of 16°C. Made using the traditional method with no addition of CO2 and then aged for a minimum of 15 months.
A shimmering pale mimosa with platinum highlights, and a plethora of fine, persistent bubbles.
The intense nose is redolent with citrus and exotic fruit.
The palate opens incisively, echoing the nose with complex aromas of citrus peel and passion fruit.
A powerful and ample middle palate offers opulence and length. This Crémant is very elegant and makes a perfect aperitif.
