Product Description

The nose is powerfully reminiscent of fresh fruits with dominant notes of citrus and exotic fruits, followed by a touch of jasmine, white peaches and pink peppercorns.

Beautiful pale golden yellow color with gentle green reflections.  Its active effervescence with persistent release of bubbles is, at first, very intense on the nose, with fresh fruit notes, particularly ripe citrus fruits. A second refined floral nose with notes of white flowers and fruits (white peaches, pineapple) follows.  Notes of nectarines, citrus fruits follow with a pleasant mineral quality in the long and vibrant finish.

The blend is 100% chardonnay from A large majority of Premiers Crus from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims vineyards for aromatic refinement, supplemented by Sézannais wines known to provide maturity. Finally, several wines from the north of the Vesle valley give a light, fresh touch.  The blend is from various years (20 to 25% of which are wines reserved from the 2 previous years).

This is a perfect champagne for aperitifs, and is an excellent accompaniment for seafood and shellfish; perfect with a sea bass or sole.
