Its Great Growth feature speaks for itself: this is the Champagne of exception. Only remarkable years can produce a Comte de Marne cuvee. Listed terroirs combine with gastronomy. Rich and complex, its aromatic power requires refined dishes (Saint Jacques, Poularde chicken from Bresse, pan-fried Foie gras deglazed in champagne).
Blended: 70 % Chardonnay, 30 % Pinot Noir from the first presses of the Grand Cru
terroirs of the Montagne de Reims « Louvois » and the Côte des Blancs «
Avize, Cramant, Chouilly ». A blend of one single year’s harvest.
Vinification: Manual picking and selection of the best grapes from Grand Cru classified
terroirs, which achieves the desired balance. Pressing of whole bunches
near the vineyard plots to extract the best juices, the “cuvée” juices;
guaranteeing optimum quality. Minimalist vinification in thermo-regulated
stainless steel vats in small containers in order to respect the typicity of
each terroir. These terroirs are then assembled with care in order to
obtain generous wines full of liveliness. The role of the dosage at 7g / L is
to create an exceptional balance combining complexity and structure.
Ageing: Aged in the obscurity of our cellars at a constant temperature of 12° for 36
to 48 months
Aspect: Its mellow gold hue is a sign of its ageing. Its mousse is delicate and its
bubbles extremely fine.
Nose: A rich, intense nose with a wide aromatic palette encompassing yellow
fruit, pear and Mirabel plum, almond, hazelnut and white blossom, such as
acacia, with a honeyed, toasted touch.
Palate: The attack is forthright and elegant. It has a purity style that marries the
structure and the texture of Pinot Noir with the balance and the freshness
of Chardonnay. Perfect balance and immense length.
For epicureans this is the perfect gastronomic champagne to accompany
the most refined cuisine.
