Golden straw colour, typical of the 2008 vintage. Sourire de Reims 2008 subtly combines flavours of yellow fruit (peach, apricot) with hints of spice such as liquorice and peppermint, classic aromas of this great vintage. The attack is vibrant, extremely fine and delicate. A complex set of flavours gently come through, made of fresh fruit and hints of linden and cinnamon. The after taste delivers an outstanding freshness, evidence of a generous vintage with great potential.
