Four elements: one vineyard, one grape variety, one vintage and one vision.
Terroir, production method and maturation: The grapes are obtained from the 0.8 hectare Les Blanches Voies vineyard in Rilly La Montagne. The shelter is the only south-facing plot in Montagne de Reims. The vineyard was planted in 1964. The base wine is vinified in 600-liter oak barrels, where it also matures for 15 months. Malolactic fermentation is prevented. The wine undergoes a second fermentation using the traditional champagne method, after which it matures under a natural cork on the lees for 3.5 years under a natural cork. Dosage 3g/l, re-cap in July 2022.
Use: For creamy fish and seafood dishes.
Description: Strong and slightly oxidative aroma, with both ripe lemon and toasty and nutty characteristics. The taste is very dry and refined, the bubbles are small and elegant, and the aftertaste is seductively full of yellow apples, subtle smokiness and saltiness.
