A straw gold color and very fine bubbles. Its delicate hue comes from to the use of a high percentage of Chardonnay and of the first pressing only. The first aromas reveal the citrus character of the Chardonnay, such as lime and grapefruits. Red fruit aromas then come out, including redcurrant, raspberry, morello cherry - typical Pinot Noir. On leaving the wine to open up, candied fruits, even exotic fruits of Pinot Meunier appear with aromas of banana and pineapple. The palate is lively. The nose is confirmed by the first taste, including citrus, almonds, toasted bread and "brioche"... but also redcurrant jelly, and dark fruits like cherry, fig or blackberry. The palate is full, quite long, with a very clean finish. Elegant, but not without complexity, this wine perfectly illustrates what is "the house style."
Firm and focused, this lively Champagne is finely knit and elegant overall, offering flavors of Gala apple, pickled ginger, blackberry and toasted almond, with a hint of fleur de sel on the finish.
Pale gold. Expressive, precise aromas of nectarine, pear skin and chalky minerals. Racy and focused on the palate, displaying steely citrus and orchard fruit flavors underscored by zesty minerality. Concentrated but silky and brisk, with strong finishing cut and excellent length.
This is a tightly built, aromatic Champagne; its leesiness picks up on fruit-skin flavors while firming up the wine with minerality. A match for braised pheasant or rabbit.
