To our eyes it is shining from the first reflections of light gold. The mousse is creamy, the perlage is fine and continuous.
The nose offers a very fresh and daring aroma: citrus hints of lime and citron being extended to flower accents of chamomile and tropical fruit (banana).
In the mouth it continues its finesse and the highlighted freshness by citrus fruit and fresh mint.
