Origin and blend

80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir.

10 to 15% comes from ‘reserve’ wines, and the blend is put together from selected tanks.

Hand harvested with strict grape selection. 

Dosage

8 g/l. Brut

Ageing

Ageing on the lees for between 3 to 4 years minimum.

Tasting notes

Elegance, brilliance and crystal-bright purity of vision….at first, the aroma is dominated by citrus fruits, grapefruit, mandarin and elegant floral notes, but it develops into a warmer, toasty character. In the mouth the wine is vibrant, rich, and with a complex mixture of honey and spices.

Food pairing

This wine is a fine introduction to a meal, and can be drunk by itself just for the pleasure of tasting such a classic style.

Perfect as an aperitif or during a meal. The best match is with pan-fried scallops or poultry dishes.

Serving advice

Serve between 8ºC and 10ºC.
