By nose: Caramel, vanilla and warm milk. By mouth:mandarin orange, custard and a rich creamy mouth feel. A perfect aperitif by itself and for a great cocktail, simply add a few pomegranate seeds to the flute. Pair with rich foods such a foie gras, as well as sweet and sour sauces and anything prepared with exotic spices, including curries and chilies. Also great with a BLT.
Russian Cuvée commemorates the style of sparklings we made for the historic Reagan - Gorbachev summit meetings, which ended the Cold War. Although "sweeter” than the Classic vintage Brut, the higher dosage doesn’t come across as sweet, but more floral and does make the wine richer and fuller.
