This Brut is the perfect example of what a talented Champagne-grower can achieve and it doubtlessly competes with any Brut Champagne on the market! This is a blend of Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay from different vintages (like most Non-Vintage Champagnes) that has spent 3 years bottled in the cellar before being released - vs 18 months for most of its peers. As a result, this is a deliciously creamy and fresh Champagne with fine bubbles; developing lovely aromas of pastry (shortbread, almond paste) and fruit (peach, apricot, apple) on the palate...

|What experts say|
Bronze Medal at Decanter World Wines Awards - 89/100 "Thoroughly ripe red apple and white fruits palate with rhubarb nuance and engaging chiselled, lemony finish."
1* "Pinot Meunier (80%) and Chardonnay (20%) give a champagne with a well-opened nose of mirabelle, peach, apple and blond tobacco. The palate impresses with its roundness and delicious creaminess combined with a nice final freshness. A harmonious Brut that will be perfect from aperitif to dessert."
