  • bubbly, sparkling & champagne

Winemaker's Notes

The vintage Brut is only made in the best years. The grapes originate mainly from the Grands Crus of the Vallée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs, limited production. The blend is composed mainly of Pinot Noir mixed with Chardonnay and is aged for many years in cellars before being marketed.

Deep pink in color, extremely fine discreet mousse. The rich bouquet is full of ripe fruits, candied fruits, and figs. It's well-structured with an exceptionally long finish.

Marries well with all types of meals except very spicy or sweet but is delightful when served after dinner.
