The different cuvées

Gamme "Elégance"

Champagne Brut Réserve

Within this blend Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir create an ideally harmonious balance between the Chardonnay's powerful minerality and the powerful flavor and structure of the Pinots.

C. de Pinots

60% Pinot Noir and 40% Pinot Meunier from grapevines of at least 30 years old.
In this excellent Blanc de Noirs you will discover the smell and the taste of wood, herbs, figs and brioche. You really should try this champagne with foie gras!

C. de Chardonnay

100% Chardonnay from grapevines that are + / - 30 years old.
Tempestuous bubbles and fresh flavours of green apple and citrus fruit give it a balanced taste. The mineral freshness makes it ideal as an aperitive.

Brut Rosé

30% of each grape variety: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay and 10% red wine from the Champagne region, from grapevines that are +/- 30 years old.
A very attractive rosé d'assemblage. A lovely red colour with flavours of currant.

Brut Millésimé 2007

Complex flavors, made of well matured quince, tobacco, coffee and vanilla aromas. Palate-fine and well balanced wine that contributes to a performing wine at its peak.

Gamme " Confidence et Parcellaire"

Brut Terre de Sable

45 % Pinot Noir, 22 % Pinot Meunier and 33 % Chardonnay from grapevines that are +/- 30 years old.
The newest cuvée of the house is full of character, has a thin pearl necklace and has intense flavours of hazelnut and apricot. The 3 grape varieties are in perfect harmony.
It results in a very tasty champagne.

Cuvée Jean-Baptiste

30% Pinot Noir, 15% Pinot Meunier and 55% Chardonnay from grapevines that are +/- 30 years old.
The blue grape varieties have matured for 12 months in wooden barrels, which creates an aroma of almond, nuts and delicate wood.
Its luxurious taste holds a vinous character. The beautiful, long aftertaste with flavours of orange zest and green apple finish it off!
A superb champagne that can be drunk just for fun, but also with a steady meal with veal or foul. A real pearl!

Brut Millésimé 2002

Complex flavors, made of well matured quince, tobacco, coffee and vanilla aromas. Palate-fine and well balanced wine that contributes to a performing wine at its peak.

Champagne Brut Nature - Cuvée La Pucelle

Solely made of Pinot Noir grapes and exclusively coming from the location named 'La Pucelle' on the Chamery Land. This premier cru cuvée is a non- dosed champagne (no sugar added).
