Utterly seductive, brilliant golden colour, shimmering with fine, regular bubbles. The nose is an elegant combination of fruity, floral and mineral notes. Aromas of citrus, peaches, pears, ripe wheat and white flowers develop against a background of mineral notes, layering with hints of chalkiness and brioche. The palate shows a freshness tempered by just sufficient vinosity for a creamy, supple attack, giving way to delicate flavours of lusciously ripe fruit – aromas of Mirabelle plums and citrus, perfectly blended in a tasty, persistent mouthfeel.
L’Intemporelle is a magical blend of fruit from carefully selected parcels, made in a seductive, well balanced style. First released in 1990, this wine has become a favourite of gourmet restaurants far and wide.

The 2005 vintage was a year of marked contrasts between seasons and regions. Following a fairly harsh winter, 2005 had a mild spring with relatively warm temperatures all year long. There was above average sunshine and a slight water deficit, as had been the case throughout the dry cycle of 2005/2004 and 2003. The heat and humidity in July produced larger grapes and bunches, rather unusually for the Champagne region, while the cooler weather in August, followed by a very sunny month of September, led to favourable ripening in spite of heavy parasite pressure. The harvest dates were “typical” of those of the decade: September 12th for Chardonnays and the following day for Pinots Noirs.
