Winery Notes:
Origin:
The Brut Originel lets easily discover its subtle aromas coming from the prolonged aging. It is exceptionally elaborated from parcels coming from 3 different terroirs.

The blend is 55% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Meunier. This is a well structured Champagne without aggressiveness with a long finish allowing all expression of the “terroir”.

Characteristics of the wine:
Aspect:
Fine and prolific bubbles “mousse”. The colour is typical champagne with hint of yellow gold.

Aroma:
The nose is a mixture of flowers and fruit with a well developed maturity.

Taste:
Aromatic with smoke, ripe damson plum and blackberry notes riding the creamy mousse, layered with accents of lightly charred toast, golden raisin and roasted nut. Tangy finish.
