- Aged for eight years. After this time, the freshness is still apparent, but the benefit of aging on lees has reached full potential.

This is a particularly mature style of Champagne, rich and biscuity. With fresh acidity, and a dry finish, this is definitely a food Champagne.
Light gold in colour. A fresh nose with aromas of sweet almond, and notes of candied lemon peel, dried cranberries and red fruit jellies. Concentrated and precise, it is very representative of 2012.
Fresh and pure, the palate expresses notes of spices that are typical of the Ay terroir. The texture is chalky, and the finish is very mineral.
Exclusively Grands Crus. 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. The Pinot Noir comes from their vineyard at “Le Léon” in Ay, and in Mailly, and the Chardonnay from Verzy. A portion of the wines are vinified in wooden barrels without malolactic fermentation to preserve the wine’s freshness, allowing it to develop complexity. Both ample and tangy, this cuvée is eminently suitable for low dosage, extra brut, with only 4.25 g/litre, which is just one third of the conventional dosage for a brut champagne.
