Description

The brand that was created in 1913 in Avize is now installed in Reims. Left dormant for a time, it was reignited from the ashes thanks to Victor Düntze, oenologist and family heir, who decided to revive this champagne brand on the occasion of its centenary. With an almost Burgundian philosophy, the cuvées are presented by great terroirs. They operate half way between a house and grower model.

Gault&Millau's review
Light and fresh nose, biscuit and brioche, with round yellow fruits and sour dough bread. Crisp and cracking bubbles cut through the smooth palate, like silken gingerbread with great bitter tones, sour dough and citrus twits, saline, sapid, and salivating, chewy white fleshy fruits, gourmet with well balanced dosage at the Extra Brut limit (5,5g/l), intensely lively and long, freshness that stays light and brioche. A day time style Meunier more than a dinner wine.

Gault&Millau's review
The biscuity nose is fresh and lightly concentrated with yellow fruit and orange bitters. Airy, full bubbles and mousse float on the rich yet zingy, zesty, and tonic palate, lime citrus, sapide, sappy and dry (chewy), surprisingly feeling more white than black grapes, sprinkles of white pepper and celery salt, as pristine purple hues arrive to perfume the final. Elegance and lightness.

With a faint glow, the robe, nose and bubbles are all translucent, with aromas of lemon tart and golden flaky pastry. Lively bubbles and mousse play in the lemony mouth. Sharp and mineral, the palate is also light and airy, as lemon soufflée and concentrated lemon essences sing on the long continuation. Perfect for a champagne breakfast, brunch, aperitifs and entrées.

Cool and restrained nose of white flowers, yellow fruits, and compact biscuits. The fluffy and airy mousse and bubbles persist on the softest, delicate palate, so subtle you have to pay attention. Structured by cool acidity, as white floral notes open, becoming more gourmet and patisserie with honey, almond slices, fresh nougat and marzipan at the end. Lovely elegance.

Patisserie and creamy nose, white and yellow fruit tarts with custard, and a herbal hint. Bubbles are delicate yet vibrant with an airy mousse, on the smooth, lemon meringue pie palate, with a fresh, white fruit profile (pear) that lingers. Delicious.

Gault&Millau's review
Ce premier cru issu majoritairement de pinot noir provient des récoltes 2008 et 2009 de la Montagne de Reims. Il en a hérité à la fois de la rondeur et surtout de la belle tension du 2008, perceptible en bouche par un équilibre fin entre structure et minéralité. Un champagne bien exécuté, marqué par la finesse et la distinction. Bravo.

Gault&Millau's review
Bright red and black cherries on the nose with nougat and crusty cake, topped with big, crisp and airy bubbles and a frothy mousse. Lots of tiny concentrated dark berries, and lively fruits attack on the palate, leaving a slightly empty place in the middle, perfumed with dark, sour cassis on the finish, as white bread is lightly toasted. Perfect for breakfast or brunch with berries, and later aperitifs.
