With this new blend, Hervé Deschamps honours the heritage of the House style maintained by a line of seven cellar masters, whilst emphasising the unique character of the 2011 vintage. The freshness and elegance of the Chardonnay (50%) is combined with the generosity of the Pinot Noir (45%) and the rounded charm of the Pinot Meunier (5%). A low dosage (9g/l) further refines the sophistication and delicate mouthfeel of this great vintage.
To the eye, it offers a translucent gold of radiant clarity with fresh and subtle glints of green reveals persistent and fine bubbles.
On the nose, acacia and lime-blossom flowers notes are complemented by slight honey notes. Fresh aromas of almond, white peach and pear are then enveloped in candied citrus peel notes.
On the palate, the wine displays a bold presence that develops into a persistent freshness revealing white floral aromas, followed by a mineral finish.
