Winemaker's Notes:

The color is lovely light yellow, bright and sparkling. On the nose, a fruity, floral fragrance of lilies with a suggestion of fresh walnut. Small soft fruits and brioche grace the slightly woody palate. Very fresh, rich and delicate, crisp, with a lovely aroma of fresh fruit.

The Cuvée Paradis is a magnificent wine, well structured, balanced and complex, full-bodied yet very delicate, lingering and full of harmony. The Cuvée Paradis is truly exceptional.

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.
