Tasting notes

The eye is marked by a golden yellow, with pronounced intensity and amber reflections. The bubbles are persistent.

The nose is rich and intense, you will feel notes of dried fruit (especially hazelnut), ripe fruit (quince) as well as Vanilla notes.

In the mouth, from the first sensations, you will perceive the organoleptic complexity of this champagne. The flavors of hazelnuts and nutmeg bring depth and amplitude to the wine. When closing the eyes, they are notes of toasted bread, of honey, lightly wooded which complement the palette of aromas. The finale flies away to bring a magnitude in the mouth and a persistent aromatic of great vigor. The two grape varieties blend here completely. 

The Champagne and Mets agreements

With friends: At the aperitif with a refined county then you will continue the meal on a roasted chicken.
Chic meal: Ideal champagne for a meal, it will be excellent with a chicken de Bresse champagne sauce.
We recommend the Vintage 2012 with the main course or a cheese platter.
We do not recommend to serve the Vintage 2012 first if you plan to open other bottles after, its roundness and its power will camouflage all the liveliness of the other champagnes…

The trick

The best champagne-Mets arrangement is to bind the dish with a sauce made with the wine which will then be tasted. This makes it possible to create a red thread between the two and thus to sublimate the chord.
