Description

Ce domaine familial de 6 ha est né de la rencontre d'Elisabeth et de Jean-Marie qui ont uni leur vie puis leurs vignes. Ils élaborent ensemble des cuvées matures et peu dosées, à l'image de la philosophie qu'ils ont du champagne. Très complémentaires : Jean-Marie à l'écoute de ses vignes et Elisabeth élaborant les cuvées en cave.

Gault&Millau's review
The majority of the blend comes from the 2011 harvest supplemented with reserve wines.The balanced dosage is gourmet and seductive while respecting the fresh and chalky texture of the wine, and the powerful bitters on the finish will appeal to connoisseurs. Try it with a lobster fricassee and hollandaise sauce.

Gault&Millau's review
Composed of a blend mostly from the 2010 harvest plus reserve wines, this cuvée expresses fullness, finesse of texture and aromatic complexity, with notes of honey and yellow fruits. The balance between power and freshness is evident all the way to the chalky finish, developing subtle bitter notes. A great value for money champagne to be reserved for the table as an accompaniment to white fish with lemon cream.

Gault&Millau's review
Dominated by Chardonnay this Vintage cuvée, with a judiciously light dosage, reveals the aromatic richness and maturity of the 2011 harvest. Toasted and honeyed notes dominate on the palate, as buttery textures arrive towards the finish, ending with powerful bitterness that could be countered by a colourful dish like sweetbread “meunière”.
