Alcohol/vol 12%
The blend of cuvée, of which 20% is vinified in oak, has been made with a strong dominance of "Grands Crus Pinot Noir. It promises a subtle richness of lavours and an ageing potential worthy of a great vintage champagne. A soft yellow hue with a golden shimmer which is naturally underlined by an abundant and dynamic effervescence. There is a subtle richness of flavours (white and yellow stone fruits, mandarin zest and citron flavours). The finish exhibits a well-proportioned structure and ageing potential which is symbolic of champagne vintages. This champagne exhibits a delicious fruit intensity with elegant notes of orchard fruit, nuts and citrus fruits. A pure and nuanced sensory development comes from gourmet notes of marzipan, fresh pineapple and greengage plums. Enjoy with exceptional fish dishes, shellfish, the finest hams, risotto.

Definitely dry, this impressively crisp wine is tightly textured, mineral in character and with great fruit. Its acidity and taut tangy character are part of a sophisticated wine that is still maturing. The hints of toast are there, but this beautiful wine will take a while to show its full potential. Drink from 2019.

Sleek acidity firms this tightly meshed 2007, a racy frame for flavors of crème de cassis, toast, ground ginger and candied lemon zest. Long and minerally on the finish. Drink now through 2027.
