Manual harvest blended with reserve wines from the two preceding vintages aged ten months in large oak casks. No malolactic fermentation. Dosage: 8 g/l
The pale lemon shade with golden and green highlights is shimmering and luminous. This wine develops a fine, elegant and long lasting mousse.
On the first nose, the wine reveals white flower aromas (honeysuckle, lilac), citrus notes as well as fresh butter and cream. After airing, as it is getting warmer, this Champagne exhales another spectrum of aromas.
The wine reveals spicy notes of ginger, lemongrass, which were unsuspected until then. The beautiful quality of the acidity (present throughout the tasting) is especially remarkable. The frank vinosity of the wine (roundness and alcohol) gives an impression of strength and freshness. The wine appears both broad yet tight. These various sensations produce a pure, creamy and silky textured wine.
The finish is clean, slightly mineral and long. The last aroma is the grapefruit. The impression will be remembered as a harmonious, healthy and vibrant wine.
This wine pairs well with soft and creamy in texture meals. Fish such as sole or turbot with a mild sauce, fine crustaceans such as prawns or oysters are suggested. This champagne can also be tasted for aperitif.
