Vineyard & Vinification Note

Terroir: 19 Crus of which a majority of Grands Crus and Premiers Crus such as Aÿ, Bouzy, Chigny, Ludes, Taissy and Mailly.

40% of Grands Crus – 20% of Premiers Crus

The terroir of the Montagne de Reims is mainly chalky, giving the Champagne all its minerality, body and finesse.

The terroir of the Vallée de la Marne is much richer (more marly, clayey); balancing the Champagne by bringing its richness.

Vinification :

Dosage : Brut Nature – Zero dosage

Thermo-regulated stainless-steel tank. Malolactic fermentation

Ageing in cellar: 8 years

Tasting Note

A pale gold hue, limpid, which sublimates a delicate bubble. At the first nose, a few brioche notes, slightly toasted as well as aromas of ripe yellow fruits such as mirabelle plums. When aired, elegant raspberry aromas unfold. As the wine evolves, it reveals slight hints of cedar wood. Beautiful structure and freshness; minerality and saltiness in the mouth. Slight notes of grapefruit zest are delicately expressed on a long and persistent finish.

Ageing potential: 10 years

Food Pairing

A scallop and citrus fruit carpaccio. A fillet of red mullet accompanied by a drizzle of olive oil and lemon juice. A seafood platter
