Then 50% of the Pinot Noir Grands Crus from the Montagne de Reims (Verzy, Verzenay, Mailly, Louvois and Bouzy).

The color is very deep golden yellow with remarkable shine

On the nose: first attack on citrus fruits such as pineapple followed by touches of dried fruits such as apricot with a finish on nuances of jammy mirabelle plums.

In the mouth: perfect balance between freshness and intensity. Very nice fine touches of white peaches and plums.

To be served around 9-10 ° C.

Food / wine pairing: an unforgettable marriage with white meats in sauce with some mushrooms and black Périgord truffles.

The harvest began in mid-September in dry and cool weather, which produced grapes in perfect sanitary condition, with very fine Chardonnays and Pinots Noirs.

These high-quality grapes reveal a magnificent aromatic richness which presaged an exceptional vintage.
