A bright and shiny light golden hue, 'Les Coulmets' is an airy champagne with sensations of white flowers and citrus fruits, such as lychee or bergamot. The palate experiences well-roundedness with notes of hazelnuts and pruned almonds, pastries and honey of spring acacia flowers. This definitely needs time after disgorgement, to show it's true potential.
