A blend of meticulously selected Premiers and Grands Crus. The shimmering eff ervescence of the Chardonnay is enhanced by the roundness and elegant, aromatic richness of the Pinots. A delicate dosage contributes to the balanced expression of the champagne’s maturity.
The aromatic harmony of this cuvée reveals a world of delicate spice and mint, where toasted and mild tobacco nuances mingle with a fl oral bouquet. The generosity of these fl avours is entwined with a surprising freshness and a youthful of citrus fruits on the fi nish.
With sautéed calf sweetbreads and pan-fried girolle mushrooms, or with game marinated in champagne and black truffles.
Champagne: The 1983 vintage was one of the decade’s most mature vintages and is at its best today.
This vintage was not born without pain, either. If the 1982 winter was cold and the spring cool, then this year it was many more times so. The damp and flowering. When it finally took place, the weather conditions were excellent. The summer was warm and sunny. As in the previous year, fall rains saved the grapes from drying up. Along with the rains of early September, temperatures fell and the maturing slowed down. The weather improved toward the end of September, and the harvest was reaped in early October. The vintage grew to be even bigger than the 1982 one. The wines have matured noticeably faster than the 1982 vintage. Stylistically, the wines are robust, lush and at a really enjoyable age right now.
