Under the watchful gaze of a third generation of champagne winegrowers, the grape harvest from old vines that are more than 50 years old was made entirely by hand for this Blanc de Blancs wine raised 100% in small oak barrels, among which 15% in new barrels for 10 months.
The colour is a bright gold and a super fine bead. After more than 8 years of ageing, this needs time in your glass to unfurl and show you all the intricacies in the wine. We suggest decanting if you have one. A wide range of aromas which range from ripe yellow fruit like peach, apricot, quince with touches of honey and gingerbread.
The nose flows effortlessly on to the palate with ripe peach and some ginger spice. This is a powerhouse wine and one that will go down in the history books. Erick De Sousa, recommends a potential of ageing of 15 to 20 years in a dark cellar, away from noise, bottle laid flat. Drink 2023-2028
