Vineyard & Vinification Note

Clay-limestone soil Acidity: 4.90 Residual sugar: 8g/l

Grass is planted between the vine rows to reduce yields and create a healthy natural ambiance. Gautier identifies and picks the Chenin Blanc vineyard parcels for his sparkling wines at the start of the harvest period, generally at 1.5 degrees lower in maturity than the fruit harvested 7-21 days later for the still wines.

Traditional Champagne Method

The bottles are stored in their 2kms long cellar in order to maturate on the lees. To maintain a dry, fresh and finesse style, Gautier typically uses only 8 grams per litre of cane sugar for the dosage

 

Tasting Note

Straw yellow color with green and gold highlights. Fine, tiny bubbles with a beautiful mousse. A fruity nose with aromas of citrus highlighted by delicate scents of white peach and flowers. In the mouth the attack is fresh and supple. The fruit takes over with subtle

flavours of citrus and white peach. Vegan.

Food Pairing

Perfect as an aperitif or with savoury tapas, charcuterie and sushi.
