This top range champagne is made with a particular type of production and a unique vintage (2013). Vinified with grapes from our oldest vines, the lower yield in these plots gives the grapes more sugar, and so a greater complexity to the taste.

Tasting

Appearance

We can see a pale golden colour with reflections of copper. Nice lines of bubbles appear on the glass surface.

Nose

Delicate and very expressive. We find crunchy white fruit aromas combined with floral notes such as acacia. Then we have peach marmalade; beautiful balance between freshness and fruit pleasure.

Taste

The beginning is nice. We feel maturity with ripped fruit aromas. The taste is rich and balanced between Pinot's fruitiness and Chardonnay's floral flavours.

Food and Wine matching

taste as an aperitif, on a St Jacques carpaccio, a sole meuniere, or a light fruit pie.
