40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Meunier. Brut Premier is aged for three years in the cellars and left for a minimum of six months after disgorging to attain the perfect maturity.
Aromas of citrus fruit (lemon) and fresh, zesty notes combined with soft tones of grilled hazelnuts and heady acacia flowers. After aeration, the wine develops hints of fresh wood, subtle spices (pepper,cardamom), cocoa beans, and honey nougat which add depth.
The palate is simultaneously smooth, rounded and fresh. The attack is juicy, direct, concentrated and pure, yet exceptionally soft and gives way to a saline freshness endowing it with remarkable mineral precision and discreet elegance. The result is a delicate, fluid, supple, coherent and disconcertingly honest tasting experience!
