This independent Champagne House was founded in 1874 and has remained in the family for 5 generations. All their vineyards are Premier Cru located in the typical chalk soil of the Montagne de Reims. Only the first and best juice is used for all their cuvées.
Aged for 5 years on its lees this Blanc de Noir has intense aromas of red currants and red berries alongside dried fruits and almond notes. Very fresh on the palate with a delicate mousse and biscuit flavours. Great length.

Effectively a Blanc de Noirs, made entirely from red-skinned grapes, this is a blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The wine was aged for five years on its lees before release, giving it a rich, full character that is just right. With maturing ripe white-fruit flavors, the wine is ready to drink.- 92 pts Wine Enthusiast
