Country: Champagne, France
Tasting Notes: Made entirely from Chardonnays from only the best vines in the prestigious Côte des Blancs and is only produced when the harvest is of exceptional quality worthy of a vintage year. Light, abundant bubbles rise steadily to form a fine mousse. Very intense bouquet, opening with notes of pastry cream of great aromatic richness. The finish is accompanied by a few lightly toasted notes. The attack is frank with good tension, good structure, and a hint of fruitwood.
