100 % Chardonnay – Principally put together from the very different Montagne de Reims and Côte des Blancs base wines.
There is fantastic freshness on the palate and flavours of caramelised tropical fruit, a hint of lemon zest, the same creaminess as on the nose, and then a crisp finish. The aftertaste is delicate and toasted. This characterful assemblage has been resting quietly in our cellars, acquiring wisdom and maturity. Today it is a real surprise the taster with its haunting perfume and a rare freshness on the palate. The nose starts with hints of white tobacco, with spicy, minty notes; and then there is a hint of preserved orange and a creaminess before the suggestion of some roasted characteristics.
The opulent elegance of this Blanc de Blancs will go wonderfully with crayfish ravioli and a coral jus, or with a scallop tartare with truffles.
