Blanc de Noirs
Almost copper-colored, the golden color of the wine and its extra fine bubbles offers a beautiful foam (cordon).
The visual presentation is appetizing with fullness and fulfillment feeling.
The first nose is powerful and complex. Matured stone fruits (quetsche) stems from several months of aging in the cellar (roasted nuts), and also a few woody notes (spices, praline, chocolate). After aeration, notes of toffee, thyme, and mango.
Perfect stability of the wine after 10 long minutes in the glass.
The attack is firm (acidity and effervescence) and the mouth is full and voluptuous, already mineral. Well-bodied with an amazing acidity, it’s also vinous. Nougat notes on a chalky background, cashemire texture, thick and warm.
Strong, very long (more than 10 seconds), and mineral finish. Chalky identity, malt, stewed fruits, underwood.
This cuvée is best served at 12°C of temperature in a wine glass. Truffle brioched bread, mushroom tagliatelles aux champignons, lveal escalope Chaource sauce, creamy Bresse poularde, « sole meunière », Mornay oysters…
