A wine of the “Rive” type and made using grapes from a single vineyard, Col Credas opens to a complex nose with impressive intensity and balance, and delicate fruit and floral notes, such as wisteria and acacia blossom, echoed and underpinned by elegance on the palate and a pronounced bone-dry finish (4 g/l).

Presentation: Straw yellow. Dense mousse and delicate, long-lasting bead. Bouquet: Broad and generous, intense and well balanced, releasing delicate floral notes, such as wisteria and acacia blossoms, and crisp impressions of fruit, particularly of apple and pear. Palate: “Extreme” brut in style, with classic tangy acidity, very dry yet richly-flavoured; always strikingly full-volumed and remarkably refreshing, with a lengthy progression in the mouth. Impressively mirrors the fragrances on the nose. Exhibits superb harmony and elegance, crowned with a notably dry finish.
Food recommendation: Excellent as a wine to be enjoyed throughout a meal, but it is perfect with filleted sea bass with sun-dried tomatoes and hazelnuts. Partners beautifuly with all seafood (baked fish, shellfish) and with light first courses.
Serving temperature: Chill to 7-8°C., ideally in an ice-bucket at the table
Serving glass: Medium-wide white wine glass. Avoid using tall, slender flutes: while they maximise enjoyment of the bead, they inhibit release of the wine’s bouquet.
