I have to start tasting sparkling wine for my wedding in a year in order to find a best value one by then. This is a non-vintage Special Cuvée, which is the highest standard blend by this producer.

Quality: Excellent, complex, intense

It would pair well with heavier food, preferably as appetizer, but nothing sweet.
