A lovely pale yellow color dresses this champagne. Playful trains of bubbles play in the glass and create a slight persistent cord.

Its complex nose hints at a strawberry jam, raspberry jelly, peony, vanilla, and plum syrup.

THE BLEND

50% Pinot Noir 50% Chardonnay

TASTING NOTES


The taste is toned and silky with a recovery of jammy fruit, mirabelle plums, white peaches, and oranges that follow the first feeling of that nose. The bubble feeling is delicate and round. The relevant dosage allows this Champagne to express an elegant vinosity that ends on grapefruit jelly.

FOOD PAIRING

A dinner accompanied by champagne has been trendy.

Enjoy champagne as an aperitif or at dinner—pair with scallops, a filet of Saint Pierre, or a foie gras cooked.
