This is done in a traditional way in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats where partial malolactic fermentation occurs. The reserve wines were matured in wooden casks. No animal proteins are used to clarify the wines and they are stabilised to prevent tartrate precipitation.
This Champagne is produced using an original formula combining 60% Pinot Noir with no malolactic fermentation and 40% Chardonnay grapes. 10% reserve wines from the years 2004/2005. Pinot grapes are grown in the heart of the Montagne de Reims, Verzy, Verzenay and Mailly Champagne; the chardonnay grapes were grown in Verzenay and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger.
Appearance: the wine is clear and brilliant. Foam is fine and delicate, forming a steady stream of bubbles. A sandy yellow colour with hints of yellow straw.
Bouquet: the bouquet is rich in flowers and fruit. Dominated by white fruit, small tangy fruits can then be distinguished. The potent, elegant nose reveals an Divin champagne.
In the mouth: a distinct immediate mouthfeel. Its freshness resembles the minerality of great Chardonnays. Its perfect poise lends a creamy sensation. Your taste buds will be overwhelmed by the smooth sensation. As with its bouquet, enjoy the youthful aromatic enthusiasm of this champagne.
The persistency of its flavour bears witness to the fact that this really is a Grand Cru.
