20% Pinot Meunier.

Vinification :
Only "la cuvée" (the first juice from the first pressing) is used to make this champagne. Spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Vinified on fine lees in old small oak barrels with regular "Batonnage" (beating in). Malo-lactic fermentation takes place. Unfined .

Tasting notes
The nose is intense and generous. Scents of fruits, of white flowers with spicy hints. In the mouth the champagne is broad and rich, powerful though still possessing good freshness.

Suggestions
Serve at 10 °C (50°F) as an aperitif, or at table with foie gras, fish, poultry and white meats.
