The youngest in the serious Millésimé family is a fresh and frothing toast wishing to be different for the young and the young at heart. It needs 25 months from the harvest to be ready to drink and… we shall have 25 good occasions to celebrate, 25 friends to share with and 25 interesting things to do…. Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc, picked a little before ripening and pressed rapidly one time. And, missing…if we will try to drink it 25 hours a day?… Grapes: Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco. Well-balanced acidity gives freshness and flavour. Floral and fruity notes with hints of yeast, bread crust and delicate nuances of citrus. Hints of bread crust and yeast enriched with delicate notes of citrus (mandarin, lime, grapefruit), white fruit (peach, apple, pear) and dry fruit (almonds, hazelnuts, dried figs). Food Pairing: Franciacorta is an ideal wine for any point in a meal. The extraordinary quality striven for and achieved by its producers makes this a perfect wine for important occasions: from an aperitif to main dishes, from the simplest meal to the most complex.
Soft cheeses such as Brie and Camembert (especially if layered with slices of black truffle) require a little more subtlety in their pairings, a Blanc de Blancs Champagne or a Franciacorta like this one would be absolutely perfect.
"A lazy but decadent supper for me is a fish finger (they must be fried, the oven doesn’t quite do the job) on thick, well-buttered white bread with fried capers and a roughly chopped tartare sauce. And being a sucker for sparkling, a glass of Berlucchi Franciacorta 25 is a perfect treat for me!"
