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.
Their house cuvée is an equal blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Using up to 10 years old reserved wines and aged for 3 years on its lees, this Champagne has delicate aromas of white flowers with notes of apple, pear and apricot. Seductive with a very fine mousse and brioche flavours on the palate.
