A lovely fruity champagne with superb freshness it is a traditional assemblage of 35% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Meunier giving the champagne a pale golden colour and a delicate mousse.
To the eye: a golden colour, distinctive of black grape varieties ; very fine bubbles.
To the nose: a beautiful aromatic complexity ; ripe fruit and spicy aromas ; hints of roasted apples, apple compote and peaches.
To the palate: a subtle combination of structure, length and vivacity ; bubbles like velvet ; pear, brioche and spicy aromas, notes of fresh walnut.
