NV (10's)

IN THE GLASS:
Golden yellow with delicate green tints typical of the great Blanc de Blancs. Very fine bubbles.

ON THE NOSE:
It is both mineral and floral with aromas of flowers and white fruits, apricot and Mirabelle plum. Very light notes of lemon, citrus fruits, crystallized quince and honey.

ON THE PALATE:
Harmonious, complex and delicate with a great freshness. A crisp and well-structured champagne with a gentle silky finish.

FOOD MATCHES:
This cuvée, with all it’s finesse, elegance and freshness is the perfect aperitif. Perfect also with scallops, with a crab remoulade or gougères.

Assemblage :
Chardonnay : 100%
Serve : between 8° et 10°
Cellar : Up to 4 years

CUVÉE MADE
without malo-lactic fermentation
To preserve the natural fruitiness of the wines, malo-lactic fermentation is carefully avoided.

High in Acidity

Written Notes

Understood to be the first blanc de blancs from this small, very old House. While its “standards” are decent, acceptable but hardly exciting fizz, the prestige wines they release can be scintillating. I’ve seen them picked as Krug's in blind tastings by some very knowledgeable palates.

This is a blend from the '95,'96, '98 and '99 vintages. It is crisp and clean, with great length. Crunchy acidity. Tight, with finesse and a mix of flavours including a lemony note, cashews and stonefruit. Terrific champers.
