  • Winemaker Notes The nose conveys aromas of honey, mashed pear, quince and red fruits, combined with an intense saline minerality. The suave taste is richly reminiscent of ripe and mature fruit. The tension and freshness of the vintage structure its evolution in the mouth. The finale is full and harmonious, denoting an exceptional champagne.
  • Tasting Notes "Aged for 72 months in the cave this champagne displays a lovely purity and freshness on the nose along with bright fruit and chalky flavors. Very elegant and complex on the palate, this dry, pure, well structured and very persistent cuvée is stimulating and salty in the finish, still young and has great potential to age over a decade years. The dosage is 7 grams per liter." - Stephan Reindardt, Wine Advocate

Most of the vines are located in Ambonnay, the rest is in Trepail, Chigny les Roses and Chamery. Pinot Noir is dominating, but there is also Chardonnay and a little bit of Pinot Meunier.
