This cuvée is a complex blend of 60% Chardonnay primarily from the Côte des Blancs Grands crus and Premiers crus; and 40% Pinot Noir primarily from Verzenay, Ay, Mareuil-sur-Ay, and Ambonnay.
Reserve wines are used for up to 40% of the blend, an exceptional sign of quality and regularity over time.
Colour: pale gold glints mingling with very fine bubbles which produce abundant, persistent frothiness.
Nose: this cuvée gives off aromas of pear, almonds and fresh hazelnuts which mingle with notes of white flowers and light accents of brioche.
Palate: straightforward, lively attack which gives way to roundness and contained power. Excellent ageing potential in traditional cellars.
