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 7 years on its lees and made with 60% of Chardonnay and 20% of both Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, the cuvée millesime is a very expressive Champagne with quince and prunes aromas and notes of toasted hazelnut. Vinous and round on the palate with hint of minerality and fine bubbles.
