- This is an exclusive wine to Emperor Champagne

- Pair with Lobster or shellfish to unlock it's true potential and give it time in the glass to open up
Bright, slightly coppery pale pink in colour. Very intense, aromatic nose with notes of pastry, milk and white chocolate, marzipan and kirsch. Generous and fruit-laden palate flush with red fruits and strawberry purée. Freshness on the finish with a clear cut minerality and pleasant notes of tangerine.
This is definitely a food wine and pairs well with shellfish and other seafood delights. If you have the ingredients, a lobster roll or prawn roll with crisp lettuce and kewpie mayo would be perfect.
62% Pinot Noir from our Le Léon vineyard in Ay and from Mailly and 27% Chardonnay from Verzy, to which 11% Pinot Noir was added, vinified as a red wine, from our Mareuil-sur-Ay vineyards. The classic rosé pink is obtained by adding a still Pinot Noir wine (usually from the Clos des Goisses) during the initial blending process. 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.
