  • Tasting Notes This is a lovely fresh but medium-bodied example from Domaine Thibert, one of Burgundy's top producers. It is a real salmon pink colour with fairly subtle aromas of red fruits and a Champagne-like hint of biscuit and brioche. It has a persistent mousse and on the palate fruits abound - redcurrant, pomegranate, red cherries, strawberries - with rosewater and vanilla cream. The fruits balance well with the fresh acidity and the hint of tannin and you are left with a long-lasting creamy, rich, red fruit finish. This really is a wine with attitude!

    Drink on its own, with canapés, smoked salmon, caviar, shellfish including lobster, fish, chicken, turkey and desserts especially fruit based desserts such as sorbet.
