Made from a special selection of our Grand Cru parcels of Verzy and Verzenay and blended with oak-barrel-matured reserve wines, this very fine Champagne represents the essence of our Terroir and perfectly expresses our style: richness, complexity, minerality.
A unique style for wine connoisseurs !
The wine has a glorious golden hue hinting at maturity and a fullness of fruit character to come on the palate. The attack is round and full of ripe grapefruit and melon which then softens on the mid-palate with vanilla and a hint of toasted nuts. Throughout, a tight vein of acidity gives the wine great balance and drinkability followed by a gorgeous and very long mineral finish.
