Winemaker's Notes:

45% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Meunier, 15% Pinot Noir

A light-rose color with light copper glints. Fine, extremely long-lasting bubbles. The Chardonnay aromas mingle subtlety with the fruity bouquet of Pinot Noir. Fine balance between aromatic strength and the freshness of the small red berries dominated by raspberry.

About Alfred Gratien:

If the exception in the Champagne region bears a name it is most certainly that of Alfred Gratien.

At Alfred Gratien’s, craftsmanship is worshipped, and it is not by chance that the house is one of the last to respect the traditions of the champagne business, while still adapting to progress.

And the willingness of the directors to remain faithful to the philosophy of the founder, Alfred Gratien, can be seen at each stage in the production of these wines of distinction. Rigorously selected grapes, traditional vinification, purposefully limited quantities and respect for the " terroir " make Alfred Gratien really unique.
