THE ART OF

Crafted from a majority blend of grapes sourced from Premier and Grand cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs, notably from the villages of Mesnil sur Oger and Avize, precious reserve wines also account for at least 40% of the blend. It is only after resting for 4-5 years in the the cool, dark cellars in Reims, under the watchful eye of Laurent Fresnet, Chief Winemaker, that this 100% chardonnay champagne can be enjoyed. This vintage is dosed at less than 8g/l. The Blanc de Blancs blend also contain a small quantity of our prestige Cuve 38 champagne. This wine, made in the style of a perpetual reserve and crafted exclusively from Grand Cru chardonnay, is unique to the Champagne House and expresses its quintessential savoir-faire and originality.

Pale gold, glistening and crystal-clear in appearance. The lively bubbles form a delicate, gossamer cortege in the glass. The bouquet releases a flourish of minerality and bold freshness, together with aromas of citrus fruits and sun-kissed white peach. A bouquet of fresh flowers unleashes notes of honeysuckle and orange blossom, interweaved with lime flower. Fruit aromas redolent of lemon and dried apricot lead the wave, followed by pastry notes and a typical suggestion of fresh butter. Initially lively, generous and powerful on the palate. The hint of fresh lemon lingers and dissolves into butter-laced brioche notes, extended further by quince paste and acacia honey. Lovely, fresh and quite delicious length on the finish.
