Tasting Notes

The Berger family's still Montlouis Sec - from 30+ year old vines - is equally as meritorious as their sparkling Mousseaux Brut, with subtle spring blossom and citrus scents, lots of ripe orchard fruit flavours and a fresh, zesty finish - a wine that is taut and tangy and unfailingly reliable! Serve with fish, goat's cheese or Saint Nectaire.
