Produced in limited quantities, this Cuvée has been aged for 6 years in cellars before being released onto the market.
On the eye: A very pale gold hue, delicately tinged with green tints and set off by a steady bead of fine bubbles.
On the nose: The first nose is expressive and powerful, offering up an array of fragrances blending lemon zest and pastry. Its creamy evolution creates a lovely, luscious character. After breathing, the wine exudes complex aromas of mocha and cocoa, followed by notes of confectionery and fresh butter combined with the scent of orange zest with a remarkable elegance.
On the palate: The palate reveals buttery notes with hints of patisserie. Hazelnut liqueur and toasted overtones then gradually come through to complete this aromatic profile, which is imbued with a lovely tangy freshness. This is a rich, luscious champagne combining power and finesse.
