Tasting Note: Pale gold with a fine stream of bubbles, on the nose initial aromas of pear and nuttiness give way to hints of brioche. On the palate: a linear and lively flavour of orchard fruits and hazelnuts, on the mid-palate: the texture is creamy and has an elegant freshness. The finish is long with light flavours of white flowers and toasty characteristics. Pairing with light dishes, scallops and shellfish will bring out the best of this champagne.

Antonio Galloni MW
“The NV Extra Brut Blanc de Noirs Les Maillons is another gorgeous Champagne from Olivier Collin. Rich and ample on the palate, the Maillons shows all the textural richness of Pinot from this impeccably farmed parcel of 50 year-old vines in Barbonne-Fayel. Kirsch, mint, chamomile and dried flowers flesh out in a creamy, voluptuous Blanc de Noirs full of personality. In this release, Les Maillons is equal parts 2014 and 2013. Dosage is 2.4 grams per liter. Disgorged: March, 2018.”
