Vinification : Harvested by hand, whole bunch pressing, alcoholic fermentation at 17 ̊C and malolactic fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Horizontal ageing in traditional chalk cellars for at least 8 years. The wines are left to rest an additional 6 months after dosage before they are shipped.
Luminous golden colour. Fine discrete bubbles, superb cordon. Complex nose with aromas of stewed fruit and mushrooms. Initial impression of Pinot Noir with balance provided by Chardonnay. Flavours of brioche and toasted bread with an undercurrent of dried fruits (hazelnuts, almonds). A mature round wine with a silky finish combining hints of candied fruit and vanilla.
Wine & Food Pairings: Perfect with foie gras on brioche toast, a poulet de Bresse (specialty poultry) with truffles or veal sweetbreads with morels.
