The Story

Vineyard Sources: (Chardonnay) Avize, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Trépail, Vertus; (Pinot Noir) Ambonnay, Avenay, Aÿ-Champagne, Chignyles-Roses, Louvois

ON THE NOSE:

The nose delivers floral aromas such as hawthorn, lilac and violet as well as fruity aromas of apricot, apple and fresh pineapple. After the wine has warmed a little, discreet notes of coffee will appear.

ON THE PALATE:

It is harmonious, fresh and elegant. On the first sip, notes of yellow fruits, pineapple, apricot and mirabelle plum complement each other. Notes of white flowers, hawthorn, lilac
and jasmine will appear afterwards. This beautifully crisp and fresh cuvée leaves a feeling of purity and fruitiness on the palate followed by beautiful flavours of green apple and lemon.

FOOD MATCHES:

Very elegant, this CELEBRIS VINTAGE 2002 extra-brut cuvée is ideal as an aperitif. It will also be perfect with free-range poultry, sweetbread with a lemongrass sauce or fishes served in a sauce
like monkfish with a browned butter sauce. This cuvée is made to please the most refined palates.

Vintage 2006

The beginning of the year was marked by a dry spell and there were no spring frosts. A warm, dry and sunny June helped with flowering. Full bloom was recorded in the 1982-2006 average (mid-June). This uneventful period was disrupted by hailstorms in July, with 35 municipalities and 2,400 hectares (5,930 acres) affected. August was marked by a cool, wet spell but improved weather in early September stimulated maturation and, just prior to harvest, the grapes were in prime condition. Harvest dates were staggered between September 6 and 25, during which the weather was dry and sunny

Written Notes

The color is a bright and clear yellow gold. Initially the nose is very fresh and expressive with notes of hawthorn, lilac, wild white flowers and fruit notes such as pear, plum and Mirabelle. The palate is straightforward with light notes of violet. Citrus fruit aromas dominate in this cuvée: lemon drops and grapefruit sustained by pear and plum. On the palate, there is citrus, caviar and grapefruit. The finish has a long, refreshing note with a hint of saltiness and lemon.

“The year was particularly favorable to Pinot Noir which shows here a good maturity, with a lot of fruit and body.” Jean-Pierre Mareigner, Cellarmaster
