Vinification
Only "la cuvée" (the first juice from the first pressing) is used to make this champagne. Vinified in old small oak barrels, large casks and half hogsheads. Spontaneous alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Malo-lactic fermentation takes place. "Batonnage" (beating in) of fine lees every 10 to 12 days. Bottled on “fruit days” of the lunar calendar. Unfined.

Tasting notes
Attractive nose of dried fruit, white fruit and citrus flowery hints. The champagne is forward in the mouth with powerful aromatic flavours. A broad and expressive champagne.

Suggestions
Serve at 10 °C (50°F) as an aperitif, with starters such as fish, tarts and pates, prosciutto hams (culatello, pata negra), poultry and white meats
