The wine’s maturity is immediately apparent, with autumnal notes of roasted chestnuts, toasted buckwheat, rich nuts, honey and nougat. White fruit is then revealed, reminiscent of a mealy apple or a beautifully ripe pear. Scents of iodine, dried flowers and pine sap complete the aromatic bouquet.
LIVELY, WELL-DEFINED PALATE
The palate is direct and energetic, supported by lively yet delicate acidity, and a finely polished structure, enveloped by a refined, grainy texture. The wine finishes with a pleasant hint of white grapefruit bitterness.

The initial notes of the bouquet are sweet, tinged with a fruit salad of red berries (wild strawberries, raspberries, pomegranate seeds), it then develops a touch of acidity with blood oranges and starfruit. Scents of spices (black pepper, dark chocolate, cinnamon), dried flowers and fresh leather complete the bouquet.
SPICY, WELL-DEFINED PALATE
On the palate, the full-bodied attack confirms the wine’s voluptuous character. The polished structure of the Pinot Noir is accompanied by a sensation of crisp stone fruit (plums, cherries). The texture is finely powdered. A delicate astringency underscores the long finish (pink grapefruit, lime zest).

A powerful, multidimensional champagne
Yellow, with a golden glow.
Coffee, praline and Viennese pastry give way to citrus peel and kumquat, followed by mineral-tinged aromas redolent of the sea.
The silky, opulent palate expresses notes of candied citrus fruits, plums and nectarines, dried figs and dates, and vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. A precise finish has a lightly bitter saltiness.

A STRIKING NOSE
Green apple, citrus, etc. The striking intensity of these fruity notes is immediately followed by a wave of mineral freshness and white flowers. Then, the blonde nuances of brioche, cereals and fresh nuts hint at elegant maturity.
THE PALATE COMBINES GENEROSITY AND SUBTLETY
Generous and tasty, white fruit notes including pear, white peach and apple, unfurl on the palate, in the company of fine, light bubbles. Then, little by little, the sweet liveliness of the citrus nuances comes into focus, and lingers delicately in the mouth.

A FULL, GOURMAND NOSE
The first notes evoke the harvesting of red berries warmed by the summer sun: wild berries, wild strawberries, raspberries, redcurrants. These fruity aromas are tinged with floral and vegetable notes such as rhubarb, violet and poppy-flavoured candy. A hint of vanilla and pink pepper underscores the full maturity of this champagne.
A LIGHT YET INTENSE PALACE
The palate evokes a candy store and its aromas of marshmallows, hard candy, cotton candy, candy apples. As it evolves, notes of nutmeg, dried fig and black cherry appear. Pinot Noir expresses itself here with airy elegance, through an enveloping texture and a finish featuring warm spices.
