Product Description:

The base wine for this Old Vines Champagne comes from the Grand Cru vineyards of Pierre Robert Haut» «Tarclette» and «Varmery». The vines are on average 65 years old, which is important for the selection of the plots, as each plant produces a third less than a younger plant. Hence a higher aromatic potential and an optimum maturity at harvest time. The primary aromas are typical of a Pinot Noir from Aÿ: blackcurrant, small red fruit, in the nose and on the palate, with a spicy note at the end of the tasting.

These aromas have evolved with the second fermentation, dominated now by juicy fruit, such as white peach and stewed lemon. Despite a lively attack on the palate, this wine feels round, vinous, frank and well structured, long on the mouth without being heavy.

This is a great grower Champagne who outperforms many cohorts twice the price.
