COLMANT BRUT CHARDONNAY NV (blanc-de-blanc)
Chardonnay 100% (Franschhoek and Robertson). 15% of the base wine has been barrel fermented. This wine spends a minimum of 45 months on the lees at a consistent temperature of 14C before degorgement.
Delicate light gold colour with a lime-green hue. The nose is fresh, lemony and floral with notes of green apple, followed by yeasty and biscuity aromas brought by the lengthy maturation on the lees. Very fine bead of bubbles with a persistent mousse. Opulent on the palate, this wine shows a harmonious balance between fresh zestiness, mineral complexity and a warm breadth of leesy creaminess. It promises to develop great texture over time.
