The magnificent structure and unique ampleness of great Chardonnays.

 

Élaboration

This pure Chardonnay is a blend of Premier and Grand Crus from the Côte des Blancs. Every single Cru reveals a special particularity: Chouilly very floral notes, Le Mesnil sur Oger minerality, Cramant power and elegance, Vertus refined fruit. 

These great Chardonnay develop their full potential during the long maturation process: wonderfully creamy finesse, elegance and character but also delicacy.  

 

Tasting notes

The pale golden robe with light green sparkles is passed through by  very fine, regular and longlasting bubbles. 

The floral, very fine bouquet reveals fresh acacia flowers and hawthorn aromas with seductive notes of fresh brioche and honey, topped with hints of almond and citrus.

Its ampleness is amazing just as much as its wonderful balance. The texture is creamy and the delicate but intense aromas –hazelnutt, grapefruit and toasted brioche- are supported by a very refined minerality.

The final shows great freshness, delicacy and length. 

The ideal apéritif – its maturity and structure match also wonderfully with white meat (poultry, veal) as well as seafood and fish.

 

 

“Harmonious, pure, elegant with good length.”
