This elegant and racy cuvée is crafted with superb Chardonnay and Pinot Noir fruit harvested from Montagne de Reims and Les Riceys. The majority of the grapes are pressed in vineyard press houses. At the winery the must undergoes a cool-temperature fermentation. 85% of the blend is vinified as white wine and the remainder is vinified as red wine. The delicate color and intense vibrancy on the palate is obtained by adding a small proportion of still red Pinot Noir from Ambonnay, Bouzy and des Riceys. The final cuvée is blended from an extensive range of at least 15 diverse crus, and usually more, of the Champagne region as well as young reserve wines that express the blend’s fresh, lively Pinot fruit. After second fermentation in the bottle, the wine spends three years on the lees in the bottle to develop complexity and bouquet.

The full and wonderfully expressive nose delivers aromas of crushed raspberries, cherries and black currants that lead into crisp, fresh red fruit flavors on the palate. Velvety and full-bodied, this wine is lively, fruity and fresh.

A subtle accompaniment to fruit desserts, including fruit tart or fruit salad.
