Harvested and sorted by hand, pressed on a traditional Coquard wine press, only the cuvée (first juice of the pressing) is selected, vinification plot-by-plot to 80% in tuns, demi-muid casks and barrels.
Avoidance of malolactic fermentation.
On the nose, a coated, flattering bouquet of a complex palette of aromas of red fruits; airy, bright and vigorous in the mouth. Boasting great freshness, generous doses of strawberry and redcurrant dictate, punctuated by hints of fragrant ﬂowers, such as peonies. It maintains a beautiful balance with a persistent finish.
By virtue of its power, this Champagne Empreinte complements the expressive flavours of gastronomic cooking remarkably well. Bresse chicken with morel mushrooms, quail with grapes or a fricassee of forest mushrooms harmonise perfectly with this Champagne Empreinte, served at 11-12° C.
