Winemaker's Notes

Pale golden colour. Delicate nose, very fresh, lovely complexity. Fresh and supple on the palate. The first impression is of fresh green apples with a hint of white flowers and hazelnuts. Well balanced and good length.

Perfect as an aperitif. This cuvée is a wonderful match for white meat in a cream sauce or veal with a julienne of vegetables.

Critical Acclaim

"Firm and focused by racy acidity, this is lightly chalky in texture, offering tightly knit flavors of ripe Gala apple, anise, black currant candy, fresh ginger and biscuit. Shows fine balance."
91 Points

"The NV Brut Premier Cru is a very pretty wine laced with expressive notes of citrus, lemon, white peaches and flowers. This mid-weight, floral Champagne will make an excellent aperitif, but it can also stand up to lighter-bodied foods. It is a beautifully balanced wine with plenty of Chardonnay character."

Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...
