All the noble character of Grand Cru Pinot Noir from the Champagne region is revealed in this powerful, well-structured wine.
“A powerful and structured wine from the finest Pinot Noir from the Grand Cru classified villages.”
Magnificent golden straw in colour, crystal-clear, shimmering and flecked with golden glints. The impetuous effervescence is of great finesse and forms a delicate stream of bubbles in the glass.
Powerful and typical of Pinot Noir. Inviting fragrances of extremely ripe fruits, with highly concentrated, almost candied aromas pleasingly come to the fore; as the wine opens, citrus fruits and apricots begin to appear and jostle for position with exquisite dried fruit notes of almond, date and fig, making this a rich and original experience.
Fresh, powerful and refined, the Grand Cru Pinot Noir reveals its silky character to stunning effect amid its generous, rounded, well-built structure. Assisted by the glorious effervescence, the full flavours and freshness marry to perfection. Amid the flavours revealed, autumn fruits and straw thatch linger persistently.
