“Medium-deep lemon yellow colour. Stylish, subdued but layered nose of toasty, mineral and sweet fruity nuances. Fine, creamy mousse. Firm and lively, this cuvée greatly benefits from time on cork, enhancing its depth and complexity. ”

“ 55% pinot noir and 45% chardonnay, from a single vineyard in Pierry, due south of Epernay and near Cuis; L1202FC00100): Pale gold. Red berries, rose and orange peel on the fragrant, floral-accented nose and in the mouth. Sappy and broad, with very good depth and an energizing note of chalky minerals. Gains weight with air and finishes with excellent breadth, clarity and lingering mineral and honeysuckle notes. ”
