Brut Nature Grand Cru Millésime 2008
The minerality of Mesnil-sur-Oger, the fineness of Avize, the structure and the amplitude of Ambonnay are the atoms of this rare cuvée. Its noble origins express themselves under the influence of a year particularly fresh which bring a sublime sharpness. The sun coming back before and during the harvest afforded a good grapes maturation. These characteristics engrave 2008 on the great years triptych of 1990, 1992 and 2002: vintages perfectly drawn to make excellent vin de garde. This champagne is zero dosage to appreciate the terroir/year combination in its pure state.

The color is bright, pale yellow with very fine bubble. The nose is complex and refined with citrus fruit, spices and viennoiseries notes. The pallet is rich and elegant with aromas of ginger, pear and toasted bread. Persistent final. A very classy Champagne which will match perfectly with a roasted guinea fowl or any beautiful poultry.
