On this Champagne – exclusively made of our best plots from Le Mesnil sur Oger – the nose is more discreet. The fresh fruity side is always here and moreover, some beautiful floral notes come to complete the previous fragrances.
The mouth is straight, direct and sophisticated. Then, the elegant minerality arrives to surprise the lusciousness of the tasting. The iodized and lightly salty end confers this cuvée a real different personality.
The remarkable freshness of this Champagne will make your aperitif a lovely moment. Its pairing with a beautiful lobster is also an advisable perfect match.

Bright, light to medium yellow colour, with a big collar of foam. The wine smells of meringue and is very chardonnay-ish. The palate is delicate, refined, restrained and taut - yet also soft. The finish is dry and it seems to have a low dosage. Delicious wine: it has finesse and intensity. (Disgorged May 2018. Dosage 2 grams/litre) Tasted 05 Nov 2018
