THE STYLE OF OUR WINES
Time is one of the most important raw materials.
5 to 8 years of patience are necessary to elaborate our cuvées and bring them to maturity. Going much beyond conventional practices, this long rest in our cellars reveals the structure of the wines, refines the effervescence, and contributes to their complexity.
This complexity is also derived from the blending of a large aromatic palette coming from the vinification in oak barrels and stainless steel, with special focus on reserve wines.
The best plots are vinified in oak barrels from Burgundy, which bring an additional organoleptic profile during the blending. These wines enrich the noblest cuvées of the House.
The reserve wines constitute the true treasure of the domain, as they guarantee the continuity of style of the cuvées. The selected wines, which always are of great quality, are conserved in very large stainless steel vats so as to preserve their freshness over time. Via a system of perpetual rejuvenation, many years of harvest accumulate in the same vat. The wealth of old wines blends with the dynamism of the wines from the current year.
From this know-how are born rich and racy cuvées, with the expression of the terroir weaved into their fabric.
During the tasting, the nose is expressive, intensely assertive. In the mouth, the champagnes are fleshy, rich, often with a creamy texture highlighted by a mineral salinity derived from our chalky soils.
