Flavors reflect the varietals used (whether predominantly Chardonnay or Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) although it is rare to have any overt red fruit flavors. Chardonnay-dominant examples are typically elegant and racy, with apple, pear, and citrus fruit and chalky minerally aromatics. Pinot Noir-dominated examples are typically richer and fuller-bodied with mild red fruit aromatics. Both styles can also offer yeasty toasty or creamy notes depending on the winery. Pinot Meunier rarely is a major component, but its flavors resemble those of Pinot Noir.

Fruit salad especially strawberries, apple/pear tarts, lemon meringue.
