This vintage’s red grape varieties were particularly good, especially the Meunier, which explains their dominant proportion in the blend. For once, the Chardonnay stays slightly in the background:
Ageing period in cellars: at least 5 years
Ageing after disgorging: at least 6 months
Dosage : 5g/liter
A shimmering color:
Coral pink with glints of orange, and fine, persistent bubbles.
A bouquet characterized by freshness:
Initially offering refreshing notes of pink grapefruit and blood orange, followed by small red stone fruit such as morello cherries, finishing with more vegetal notes of wild strawberries and rhubarb.
A HARMONIOUS PALATE:
The attack is soft and silky. The initially light, delicate structure becomes more robust in a slightly astringent finish with notes of stone fruit such as plum and damson.
