Grapes: 70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir
Region: Champagne, France
Ageing: Aged in the obscurity of our cellars at a constant temperature of 12° for 24 to 48 months.
Vinification: Manual picking and selection of the best grapes from Grand Cru classified terroirs, which achieves the desired balance. Slow and gradual pressing of whole bunches near the vineyard plots to extract the best juices, the “cuvée” juices; guaranteeing optimum quality. Minimalist vinification in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats in small containers in order to respect the typicity of each terroir. These terroirs are then assembled with care in order to obtain generous wines full of liveliness. Malolactic fermentation to allow the aromas to gain in complexity. The still red wine of Pinot Noir comes from an emblematic village: Bouzy, classified Grand Cru. Obtained by maceration and incorporated at 5 to 8% in the blend to obtain a delicately tinted rosé. The role of the dosage at 7g / L is to create an exceptional balance combining complexity and structure.
Tasting: Delicate rose petal pink. Persistent mousse and a chain of fine bubbles. A rich nose of intense red fruit, wild cherry, black cherry, wild strawberry, intermingled with acacia blossom and lightly buttery, toasty notes. An elegant evolution that marries the structure and the smoothness of Pinot Noir with the freshness of Chardonnay. A pure, full-bodied style of excellent balance and persistence.
Food Pairings: For epicureans this is the perfect gastronomic champagne to accompany the most refined cuisine.
