The majority of the grapes used in the composition of our Blanc de Blancs come from a vineyard at the top of the slope, the first to be touched by the sunlight, and watching over the silence of the hill. Crystalline, with citrus notes. It’s chiseled texture highlights the finesse of its structure."
Producer notes: "The harmonious marriage of the two white grape varieties in Burgundy, Chardonnay and Aligoté, give this crémant its uniqueness and nobility. The Chardonnay, by far the majority, supplies it with all the traits of its character. The Aligoté gives it the gift of vivacity. Its robe, wheat-like in color, evokes freshness and delicateness. Its bewitching aromas are completed by enjoyable fruity notes. Well balanced, this cremant's vitality and youthfulness will know how to seduce the palate of amateur connoisseurs of cremant Blanc de Blancs."
Tasting Notes: This wine's shy nose reveals only lemony hints of chalk. Touches of Mirabelle appear on the palate alongside more notions of chalk and lemon, presented against a textured backdrop on a taut body. The finish is dry, subtle and enticing. -Anne Krebiehl
