Description

"Fresh, vibrant nose displaying aromas of orange, lime peel, almond, honey and brioche with ripe quince and sweet pear undertones. Great focus and length on the palate, seriously harmonious, joyful and unforced." - 97 Points, Simon Field MW, Decanter

“This is the new non-vintage replacing the well-known and loved Brut Premier. It is a whole new philosophy and shows the wonderful art of blending - which is really what champagne is all about. This is a multi-vintage wine and reflects the brilliance of the chef de cave -Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon. It has a base blend of 55% from the 2017 vintage and the other vintages in this creation are 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2011 and 2009. This wine represents the 242nd harvest at the winery since 1776.  It is a blend of 36% Pinot Noir, 22% Pinot Meunier and 42% Chardonnay. It is a rich intense wine with a nose of honeysuckle, baby daffodils and pearl narcissus. The palate is infused with butterscotch, ripe yellow peaches, honeyed nuts, glazed cherries, plum, blood orange, ruby grapefruit and delightful chalk streaks. It is very fleshy with lots of facets and some use of oak shows in the blend, sprinkled with soft spice flicked over the fruits. A beautiful wine which brings its own shining and distinctive personality to this famous House.“ – Bernadette O’Shea, Champagne Consultant
