Tasting Notes

Varietal(s):
95% Chardonnay & 5% Aligoté from Maconnais, Yonne and Châtillonais.

Winemaking:
First, we use a pneumatic press to crush the Chardonnay. Next, the wine undergoes alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks and then is put in bottles to form its bubbles through the méthode traditionnelle. It is aged for 24 months far past the legal requirement of 9 months, to ensure that the lees impart the maximum aromas and finesse to our wine.

Visual Aspect:
Bright straw yellow with tinges of green.

Nose:
This blanc de blancs is very different in character from the other pearls in our collection; its herbaceous color translates into the nose where very soft citrus notes mingle with the essence of fresh, dewey grass and aromas of fresh cracked nuts.

Palate:
The mouth is crisp with a bright acidity playing beautifully alongside flavors of pink grapefruit.

Aging:
750ml
