A MULTI-VINTAGE WINE OF MATHEMATICAL PRECISION. The House has chosen its Brut Réserve to express the quintessence of its style. Particularly recognisable, this wine is the fruit of a unique blend that can be summarised with one equation: 60/40/10. 60: the number of crus in a blend that is precise, stringent and tailor-made. The wines produced that year, a third of each varietal (Meunier, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir), are vinified cru by cru, varietal by varietal, in stainless steel vats. 40: a high proportion of 40% reserve wines, equally divided between Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, to ensure the fine complexity and indulgence of the Brut Réserve. 10: an average age of 10 years for the reserve wines, extraordinary for Champagne. Taken from the best crus from the best years, the wines placed in reserve are kept for between 5 to15 years, if not more. This maturing time is essential for their refinement and the development of their aromatic range.
BLEND: 60% of wines of the year: 1/3 of Pinot Noir, 1/3 of Meunier and 1/3 of Chardonnay 40 % of reserve wines: 50% Pinot Noir – 50% Chardonnay with an average age of 10 years COMPOSITION: 60 crus AGEING: over 4 years in chalk cellars DOSAGE: 11g/l TO BE ENJOYED: within 7 years
TO THE EYE: the Brut Réserve boasts a deep golden hue. Delicate, vivacious and long-lasting bubbles are the result of a long, slow maturing process in chalk cellars*. ON THE NOSE: thanks to 40 % of reserve wines, the blend offers a complex, elegant, voluptuous nose with a touch of freshly baked brioche, rich toasted notes and sun-drenched fruits – mango, apricot and mirabelle plum – accented by dried fruits, pistachio and almond. ON THE PALATE: the texture is reminiscent of a crisp layer of nougatine on a velvety cream pastry, filled with plump red plums and ripe cherries. The selection of reserve wines gives the wine lushness. The finish reveals a touch of praline along with vanilla and glazed notes.
