Tasting Notes:Â The Chardonnay is extremely distinctive in this cuvÃ©e with intense aromas of rare purity. Dominant notes of citrus mingle with aromatic hints of fresh almond and dried fruits.Very precise and clear attack followed by silky freshness upheld by notes of citrus and white fruit. Creamy sensation of finely chiselled bubbles combines with persistent, distinguished mineral sweetness.
Wine and food pairing:Â This great Champagne is appropriate before dinner at any time of year, but it pairs especially well with seafood platters in the summer. The Blanc de Blancs is the perfect accompaniment for a lobster soufflÃ©, a carpaccio of scallops or shellfish with a light citrus dressing. Enjoy the cuvÃ©e with your main course, pairing it with grilled sea bass dressed with dill, then with a lemon tart for dessert.
