Producer Tasting Notes

Its appearance is luminous, with soft, coppery shimmers and a sustained salmon pink hue. Palate: A measured strength which is delicate and charming at the same time, with the harmonious maturing of flavours (mandarin, blood orange, and Reinette apple tart). An ample and full character in the mouth unveiling a chalky edge and persistent finish of citron zest as well as red and white currants. Aroma: There is a refreshing sensorial experience of citrus peel and red berry jelly. With the exquisite sensation of a rich and complex aromatic generosity (Plougastel and Mara des Bois strawberries, pêche de vigne). Pretty, refined and mature olfactory notes that bring out the inimitable fragrances of sweet spices and wild raspberry pulp. Tasting: This great and highly refined wine presents its personality with wonderful delicacy of texture and flavour. The aromatic charm of a rare mineral aspect to pair with beautiful poulet de Bresse with crayfish or a few Breton langoustines royales.


Vineyard Notes

55% Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and the Grande Vallée de la Marne. 45% Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs. The grapes for the red wine are come from the “Valofroy” vineyard of old vines, located on the slopes of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ and which benefit from a south facing exposure.


Winemaking

Less than 10% of the Pinot Noir is vinified as a red wine. Partial malolactic fermentation. 17% of the wine is fermented and matured in 15 year old oak barrels.


Ageing

Ageing on lees: 10 years.
