- The much anticipated release of the 2008 vintage in a magnum
- Exclusive to Emperor (only a few remain in the country)
- Pair with... time. The magnum can be cellared another 10 years.
A taut and seductive tactile pleasure (citrus zest, seeded white flesh fruit and Breton biscuits). The wine offers a persistent finish with a structure defined by the quality of its potential as a great vintage.
This stunning wine, with an extra brut dosage, is dominated by great Pinot Noir flavours which is tempered by the elegance of the Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs. The blend of cuvée has been made with a strong dominance of Grands Crus Pinot Noir.
A delicious fruit intensity with elegant lemony citrus notes and nuts (flaked almonds, Menton lemons). There is a long and nuanced sensory development centred around exquisite hints of patisseries (raw butter, Mirabelle plum jelly).
It promises a subtle richness of flavours and an ageing potential worthy of a great vintage champagne.
