Since 2009, the House has been committed to converting part of its vineyards to Organic Agriculture. In 2016, the P181 cuvée was born.

The registered plot ZE 181, located in the heart of the commune of Verneuil, represents 7 of these 9 hectares in the final blend. The vines are grown on south-facing slopes along the Marne river. It gives its name to this emblematic cuvée.

Tasting Note

A nice pale gold hue. On the nose, yellow and white fruits aromas dominate, before giving way to a very delicate milk chocolate note. On the palate ,the liveliness seduces with a nice tonic freshness and an impression of a summer fruit basket. The finish tightens, revealing delicate bitters. Vegan.

Essi Avellan MW’s Champagne Report

Deep lemon colour. The clean, overt nose has tropical tones to the fruit, complemented by stylish toasty whiffs and lemony freshness. An organic Champagne blended from the grapes of seven villages, this is sweetly expressive on the plush palate and feels sweeter than its extra-brut dosage suggests. Rather vinous but perfectly fresh and inviting, it seems rather here-and-now in its wide-open character, so drink sooner rather than later. Drink: 2022-2025. 90 Points, August 2022

Glass of Bubbly Judges tasting note

“Pronounced aromas of buttered toast, cream, hazelnuts, lemon zest and cinnamon. Toasty flavours, with brioche, hazelnuts and apple. Beautifully balanced, a great wine.” Gold Pastries Delight

Food Pairing

Fillet of sea bass.

Medallion of monkfish with citrus fruits.

Corn soup and vegetable chips with black vitelotte
Risotto with saffron flower and button mushrooms
