This cuvée from the Côte des Blancs, more precisely from Mesnil sur Oger and Oger with limestone soil, is only made in the best vintages. This 100% Grand Cru Chardonnay is selected on a pure vintage with unique freshness and delicacy. Harvested in our best plots, Cuvée CHARLEMAGNE is only produced with tête de cuvée Chardonnay and vinified in thermo regulated stainless steel. A very light dosage (8 grams per liter) and matured 3 to 4 years in our chalk underground cellars, this vintaged champagne shows extreme finesse. Champagne lovers who are in search of perfection will appreciate the spirit of this great champagne wine.
Straw yellow color, fine and steady bubbles. Complex nose where dried fruit (raisins and figs) mix with candied fruit (oranges, pineapple and angelica). The finale is long and reminiscent of slightly spicy blond tobacco. Long and silky on the finish, with fresh grapefruit freshness. Ideally enjoyed with foie gras appetizers or a « patta negra » served with fresh hazelnuts.
