A single harvest, a single grape variety, a single terroir.
The assemblage of this exceptional cuvée is a work of great precision. The Chardonnay grapes are sourced exclusively from two legendary vineyard parcels: Bouron Leroi and Bouron du midi, situated in the heart of the Côte des Blancs in the terroir of Cramant. Situated half way up the South-East facing slope in this exceptional Grand Cru, these two vineyard parcels benefit from exposure to the first rays of the early morning sun, encouraging a slow and even ripening of the grapes.
The cuvée Belle Epoque Blanc de Blancs 2004 is the result of a year of contrasts. After a cold winter and spring with plenty of frosts, the warmth returned in September and the harvest the grapes had attained a perfect balance of sugar and acidity.
Dosage : 8g/l – Matured for at least eight years in the House cellars.
Sweetness touched with a harmonious vivacity. Clear and bright. Opalescent with tinges of green and a persistent mousse.
Generous, yet also delicate aromas fill the nose: lilac blossom and young white fruits such as peach and grapefruit. Hints of orange confit, vanilla and cream bring a subtle richness to the bouquet.
The attack is fresh, racy and enticing. In the mouth it is delicate yet dynamic, with beautiful length that seduces the palate.
