Lively leading to a complex combination of citrus and white flowers. Extremely fine, silky and creamy. The finish is fresh and long.

Blend First pressing Chardonnay, sourced exclusively from grands crus vineyards “Côte des Blancs”. Reserve wines 25 vintages, going back to 1985. Ageing Four years sur lie, then ten months further ageing after disgorgement. The delicacy of the bubbles helps to tame the naturally mineral Grands Crus to offer a sensation that is both creamy and lively. Specificity A very old winemaking method is used where fermentation in the bottle is less powerful than traditional champagne. Extra Brut

95 points / Wine & Spirits 2018 Best Champagnes

93 points: There is a rich and almost sweet extract on the palate that gives texture and length. The finish, however, is cleansing, pure, fresh and very, very long. This is a great tensioned and chalky Blanc de Blanc from the Côte des Blancs, and its aging potential should be enormous. (Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker Wine Advocate, Nov 2017) 92 points: Mineral accents of chalk and smoke underscore this firm, focused Champagne, while flavors of poached apple, fleur de sel, blanched almond and candied ginger ride the lacy texture to the airy finish. (Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, Oct 2016)
