The Story

Blend: 70 % Chardonnay, 30 % Pinot Noir

Origin: Grand Cru terroirs of the Montagne de Reims « Louvois » and the Côte des Blancs « Avize, Cramant, Chouilly

Vinification: Manual picking and selection of the best grapes from Grand Cru classified terroirs, which achieves the desired balance. Pressing of whole bunches near the vineyard plots to extract the best juices, the “cuvée” juices; guaranteeing optimum quality. Minimalist vinification in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats in small containers in order to respect the typicity of each terroir. These terroirs are then assembled with care in order to obtain generous wines full of liveliness. The role of the dosage at 7g / L is to create an exceptional balance combining complexity and structure.

Ageing: Aged in the obscurity of our cellars at a constant temperature of 12° for 36 to 48 months.

Tasting Note:
Appearance: Its mellow gold hue is a sign of its ageing. Its mousse is delicate and its bubbles extremely fine.
Nose: A rich, intense nose with a wide aromatic palette encompassing yellow fruit, pear and Mirabel plum, almond, hazelnut and white blossom, such as acacia, with a honeyed, toasted touch.
Palate: The attack is forthright and elegant. It has a purity style that marries the structure and the texture of Pinot Noir with the balance and the freshness of Chardonnay. Perfect balance and immense length.

Food/Wine Pairings: For epicureans this is the perfect gastronomic champagne to accompany the most refined cuisine.


Vintage 2000

A warm and wet winter was followed by an equally wet spring. First, in May, came the seri- ous heat, which gave a fast owering around June 14. Chlorosis and mold growth were evi- dent. June and August were hot and dry. But if you were like me, and tried to have a July vaca- tion in Champagne that year, you noticed how cold and rainy it was. The weather was almost as bad as at home, with constant rain and local hailstorms. 


Everything looked hopeless, but the good weather during harvest saved a decent amount of fresh grapes. Harvest started on my birthday—September 11—and ended in early October. Chardonnay and pinot meunier did better than the delicate pinot noir. The year will become sought after thanks to their magic number. The quality does not look too fancy yet though. The wines are quite light with short lives. However, it is a very enjoyable moment, with its intense exotic aromas of passion fruit and tangerine. I am delighted to recommend some romantic bottles of the successful pink trio William Deutz Rosé, Louis Roederer Cristal Rosé, and Pommery Cuvée Louise Rosé.
