Blanc de Blancs

The essence of Chardonnay from an exceptionnal vintage year

Our Blanc of Blancs is produced in small quantities in exceptional years only and fully expresses the superb calibre of great Chardonnay from the best crus of the Côte des Blancs. After 6 years of ageing in our cellars, remarkable minerality and low dosage make this an outstanding wine that can accompany a variety of flavoursome dishes including poultry and fish, or be served on its own to celebrate a special occasion. The blend of this Champagne is Chardonnay grapes which are 100% Grand Crus vines from three different vines; Chouilly, Avize and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. The colour is bright and luminous and a very fine head when decanted. On the nose this champagne delivers notes of flowers, citrus fruit and white peaches, which is then rounded off with an aroma of honey. The palate is a lot livelier than the nose, remarkably refreshing and dynamic for the age. Floral notes run through the palate with a long, well rounded mineral finish.
