The intense golden yellow color is a perfect background for the dazzling, chaotic rise of the delicate bubbles.
The stylish nose evokes a blend of yellow and white fruit, at once elegant and refreshing, the perfect essence of summer fruit. The taste is crisp, with a defined minerality lengthening the finale giving a wonderfully balanced expression of enduring flavour.
A full-bodied champagne, excellent as an aperitif: pair it with sliced fresh fruit, or a mixture of diced Comté cheese and shavings of aged Mimolette. It can also accompany a meal: pair with delicate savoury dishes: langoustine pastries, mildly spiced raviolis, foie gras brioche with an apricot confit, or a Brie de Meaux in puff pastry
75 % Pinot Meunier, 15 % Chardonnay, 10 % Pinot Noir The blending with the reserve wines guarantees the continuity of our cuvées tradition from one year to the next.
