Qualities and characteristics

The colour is a deep yellow that hasn’t sacrifi ced a bit of brilliance.

The aroma is subtle, slightly closed even, giving an impression of reserve. Then wheaty notes arise. A serious feel, correct and polite, a true gentleman.

On the palate the truth of the fl avour comes through with powerful aromas of fruit jellies, candied fruits, especially orange, and a blend of spices, cinnamon with just a hint of anise. The texture is structured, tight and fi rm, adding to the serious character of the wine. Underlying mineral notes are mentionable from beginning to fi nish, the personality running through it. This highlights the complexity and strength of this champagne.

Fine cuisine pairings

This champagne is to be served and savoured like a Cognac or an aged brandy, for its true naturalness and its natural truth. Serving it with food would take away from its natural beauty, its complex and expressive nature.

Available in bottle (limited, numbered series).
