The perfect Marriage
With an equal blend of firstpressed juice from black and white grapes this champagne captures the characteristic aromas of each of the 2 varietals to create a wine as balanced as it is rich. After resting for 3 years in the peace and quiet of the cellars, this champagne reveals a delicate acidity on the palate wrapped around with a soft fruitiness that is perfect as an aperitif on each and every occasion.
A blend of wines from our finest vintages. A discreet and delicate bouquet of white flowers with a delightful mineral freshness and rich aromas of ripe fruits : vine peach, citrus, apricot and mandarin...
