"Gorgeous green apple, lemon, biscuit, lemon meringue pie nose and palate within a chalky, minerally texture. Very well-judged and remarkably long. Kapow! Drinking it is a treat."

Product Description:

"This champagne of rare finesse is produced exclusively from the best Crus of Chardonnay.

Innovative assemblage of six Chardonnay from the best Premiers and Grands Crus of the Champagne region.The three pillars of this Blanc de blancs Premier Cru come from the three famous Grands Crus of Champagne – Avize, Oger and Chouilly. Avize is a rich Cru which brings strength. Oger offers tenderness and Chouilly a true elegance and finesse. These limestone soil Crus naturally present iodised notes and citrus aromas. The assemblage is balanced by the unique blend of Chardonnay of Villers-Marmery, a very mineral Cru with smoky notes making the wine round and light. The Crus from Vaudemange and Trépail complete the assemblage.

Appearance: A luminous, radiant white gold. A delicate bubble.

Nose: An airy entrance with a fine and delicate floral impression, completely elegant. Herbal notes – verbena, lime tree – the very airy warmth of marshmallow. Touches of lime, candied orange peel. An impression of crisp puff pastry.

Palate: Vivacious, with a light texture. Citrus notes of Sicilian lemon and lime. A lemon tart on puff pastry. Soft notes of white pepper, liquorice and smoke. A kaleidoscope of flavours, full of finesse, which complement each other and never end. Beautifully long in the mouth." -Winery
