This cuvée of Pinot Noir and Meunier is from the Premier Cru-classified villages of Vrigny and Gueux. The Meunier is grown in the ungrafted “Les Linguets” parcel planted in 1953, which is the purest expression of the growing area. This naturale-style Champagne does not go through malolactic, and is made without the use of cultured yeasts, clarifying agents, cold stabilisation, or filtration, all in the most complete respect for terroir character. It is released after 8 years in the cellar.
Size: 0,75 L
It appears a pale satin-gold, with a long-lingering, delicate bead. The lively nose is redolent of fresh-baked bread. The palate opens to impressions of petits fours and brioche, then opens to hazelnut and chocolate, through to a finish infused with mint and wild herbs.
Ageing potential: Already perfectly enjoyable, it will be at its best in 2-3 years, but will further evolve over the next 10-15.
Serving suggestions: Perfect as an aperitif, but is at its finest with fish, and particularly with turbot or John Dory.
Alcohol: 12% vol
Serve at 6°C
