Made from 100% Pinot Noir from the Val Cornet vineyard, this bone dry, refreshing Champagne offers a highly nuanced perfume of apple and apricot. A beautifully structured wine both rich and balanced with lively acidity.
This is a classic Côte de Bar bubbly, with lots of limestone-derived personality and plenty of lime zest citrus fruit on both the nose and palate. Like many Grower Champagnes, this is still quite young and zippy and will relax a bit structurally with a bit of bottle age. The bouquet is bright and classy, wafting from the glass in a mix of lime, tangerine, chalky minerality, bread dough, fleur de sel and spring flowers. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, crisp and racy, with a good core, brisk acids, fine focus and grip, frothy mousse and a long, youthful and vibrant finish.
