description
A golden colour enhanced by a beautiful fine stream of bubbles. Very expressive on the nose, dominated by fruity notes of pear, apricot and candied fruit, lifted by honeyed and floral notes with an intense bouquet of acacia and linden blossom. Dense and generous on the palate at first, with rich and fruity flavours of pear, quince and accents of citron. Gentle acidity and freshness on the finish, which is perfectly balanced and persistent.

In 2009, the grapes reached maturity following a perfect summertime which the Champagne region had not known since 2003. The weather was hot, dry and extremely sunny for veraison in the last two weeks of August. Thanks to a rainy period at the beginning of September, the grapes were able to fatten before harvest. The prompt return of hot weather on the 5th of September enabled the grapes to reach maturity under perfect conditions and to give a great richness to the wines.

Blend: 52% Pinot Noir, 48% Chardonnay
