APPEARANCE: Bright gold color with radiant golden hues.
NOSE: Aromas of summer orchard fruits such as peach or mirabelle plum, citrus peel combined with notes of licorice mint. Fresh and vivid, it reveals a beautiful maturity which is reﬁned and elegant.
PALATE: The attack is full-bodied and round. During the tasting notes of blood orange, lemon and ginger appear. A long inviting ﬁnish, extended by a fresh and salty close, which is the characteristic style of the House. Its personality is strengthened and intensiﬁed once breathing.
PAIRING: This cuvée will go perfectly with sushi, ﬁsh or shellﬁsh. It can also be paired with white meats or cheese such as Chaource or Brillat-Savarin
Aged for at least 12 years after bottling, this Champagne is richly textured, showing mature fruitiness, touches of aging from the brioche flavors and an elegant, ripe aftertaste.

The deep golden colour promises the richness that nose and palate duly deliver. The first sniff reveals rounded generosity reminiscent of shortbread, further swirling brings yellow apple with overtones of ripe apricot. That apple and apricot combo settles into a mid-palate mellowness, edged and enlivened by smooth bubbles that frame all this richness with their welcome freshness. Indeed, the wine works as an indulgent aperitif but comes into its own with food.

A rich and creamy Champagne, with golden raisin, pastry cream and spun honey flavors layered with citrus peel acidity and a subtle, toasting underpinning. Lightly mouthwatering throughout, with a tang of salinity on the lasting finish.
