  • Tasting notes

    Bright, light yellow, with a very fine and abundant bubble. Delicate on the nose, but already very expressive. It features a great aromatic freshness, with notes of lemon, white fruits, yellow plums and frangipani. Light but voluptuous and vibrant on the palate with a silky texture and touch of raciness. Notes of citrus fruit and white flowers, culminating in a long finish. Tightly wound on a pure line of the chalky minerality that Côte des Blancs is famous for.

  • Winemaking notes

    Le Blanc de Blancs is produced in small quantities in exceptional years only and fully expresses the superb calibre of great Chardonnay from the best crus of the Côte des Blancs. After 6 years of cellar ageing, remarkable minerality and low dosage make this an outstanding wine that can accompany a variety of flavoursome dishes including poultry and fish, or be served on its own to celebrate a special occasion.

    Super attractive aromas of chalky, fine, lemon pastry and pears with a subtle mineral thread. The palate has a very attractive array of fine, smooth peaches and citrus fruit and delivers a plush, elegant and finely focused palate. Beautifully fresh blanc de blancs.
