Style

Champagne

Grapes

100 % Chardonnay – Principally put together from the very different Montagne de Reims and Côte des Blancs base wines.

Tasting Notes

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.

Food Matches

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.
