This exceptional cuvee was created in 1964 as a tribute to the House’s founder. It results from the blending of grands crus from the classified Cote des Blancs vineyards (Chardonnay) and the Montagne de Reims (Pinot Noir). Its vinification, partially in traditional oak casks, underpins the generous character of this fine, elegant and rich wine.
Appearance: A lovely colour of sparkling yellow gold veiled in soft golden reflections. This very luminous and intense visual perception gives to the effervescence a rising of fine-cut bubbles.
Aroma: All the richness and subtlety of an aromatic curve enhances the maturity of the delicious fruit. Fine notes of praline from lightly roasted dried fruit (almonds, dried dates and grilled chestnuts), refined by the floral and sensory elegance of a touch of infusion (Lime-tree, Verbena).
Palate: The balance of a tension controlled by the blossoming of the wine (caramelised stonefruit, light tobacco) and embodied by the line of noble biscuity flavours. A truly unique and personal character showing real vinosity.
Key Taste Descriptors: Almond, Lime, Biscuity
Food Pairing Suggestions: Fruit & Creamy Desserts, Nuts, Crisps & Olives, Shellfish
Awards & Ratings: Wine Spectator – 95/100
