- Excellent quality grower using biodynamic practices
- Based along the Marne Valley in famous Mareuil-sur-Aÿ near Billecart-Salmon
- Pair with Korean fried chicken and don't feel guilty about it
Colour deep golden. On the nose, we have citrus, orange, creme caramel, honey on toast, roasted pineapple. Leading on to the palate, warming, generous, full-bodied with excellent depth of flavour.
Acidity is lower than expected which is fine as this wine is going for a richer more decadent style. Think Philipponnat Royale Reserve or Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve and you are in the same sort of territory. Very enjoyable and beautifully made.
60% from the 2015 Vintage and 40% reserve wine, hence the name. All reserve wines are aged in large foudres, in a perpetual solera form.
