Lovely, lightweight yet lively texture of the bubbles here, with a smattering of early-developing notes of blanc de blancs hazelnut and some grippy chalky characters - impressive. This Champagne is a blend of 100% Chardonnay variety from the Côte des Blancs plots, all classified Premier Cru exclusively, and from different years. The harvest is done by hand and the reserve wines are blended with the current year, and aged in bottle on fine lees. The colour is straw-gold. To the nose and mouth, the attack is bright, aerial with a wide range of citruses like only Chardonnay from Premiers and Grands Crus know how to deliver. To keep constantly cool since it is for every hour and every occasion.
To be served between 8 to 10°C.
