The vineyard of Le Mesnil sur Oger has a truly excellent terroir, 100% of its vineyards are ranked as “Grand Cru”. It is situated at the heart of the prestigious “Côte des Blancs”, so called because of the omnipresence of the superb Chardonnay. The white wine made from this grape, with its white skin and flesh is the reason why the appellation is known as the “Blanc de Blancs”. The quality of the vineyards comes from the fact that they are east-facing. With vineyard topsoil over a base layer of chalk the vineyards have excellent hydric qualities thus allowing the chardonnay grape to reach their full potential.

This cuveé is blended of wines from the heart of Le Mesnil sur Oger.

The flagship of the vineyard, this wine is made to be appreciated by champagne aficionados and has great length on the palate.

Notes of green apple and blossoms, brioche, choux pastry, chalkiness, and bready notes derived from many years ageing on yeast in the bottle. This is a potent, energized, powerful  and persistent champagne.

 

Serve with angel hair pasta with a champagne-tarragon cream sauce, veal scaloppini or a cheese plate with hard cheeses.
