Made exclusively of Chardonnay grapes from the premier cru zone of Rilly-la-Montagne, just a stone’s throw from the more famous Reims. This is a unique territory with a continental climate and an average annual temperature of around 10.5° that facilitates slow ripening of the grapes from which champagne derives its freshness and liveliness. The soil has a particular composition of limestone, chalk and marl, a mix that helps to drain water to the plants even in the driest summer season. Grapes are hand sorted and are pressed gently into tanks for the initial alcoholic fermentation. Secondary fermentation occurs in bottles as per the Méthode Champenoise. The bottles are left for three-year maturation in caves. Bottled at 12%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Unusually refined and delicate on the nose, with variegated floral scents (linden tree and lilac), hints of fruit (apricot) and spices (vanilla).

Palate: Pleasant on the palate, thanks to a sweet fruity tang and a honey-flavoured floral bouquet.

Finish: A lingering taste.
