Average age of the vines: 40 years. "Taille Chablis" method, a short pruning that gives a good harmony between strength and fertility.

HARVEST : The grapes are carefully selected for their maturity in each parcel of vines. Manual harvest with sorting of the grapes in the vineyard.

VINIFICATION :Direct pressing of the harvested grapes in a 2000 Kg traditional COQUART wooden press. Each grape variety is vinified separately. Alcoholic fermentation in vats and total malolactic fermentation with the use of selected yeasts. The wines are then kept on their lees for 3 months at least, with slight racking if necessary. Blind tasting takes place in February.

AGING / DEGORGEMENT : Aging on wooden slats, laid on their side in our traditional cellars for 6 years minimum, cuvée disgorged 3 months before shipment with an added dosage of 4,5g / litre. Finally, use of new traditional corks.

TASTING NOTES: : The bubbles are very fine; the delicate nose develops a rare aromatic freshness. The palate is voluptuous and airy with a nice minerality on the finish. It evolves with energy and finesse .... An ideal Champagne to be served for aperitif or to accompany a turbo fillet or scallops.

To be served fresh, at a temperature of 8 ° C. 20 minutes in an ice bucket, or 3-4 hours lying in the bottom compartment of the refrigerator.
