||White sparkling classic method brut
||30% Chardonnay, 65% Pinot Nero, 5% Pinot Meunier
||Traditional, avoiding any premature oxidation. Malo-lactic fermentation is most often chosen for wines processed in vats. For the past few years, a portion of the wines have been processed in barrels in order to obtain a discrete hint which adds to the complexity of the blend. These wines do not undergo malo-lactic fermentation. The dosage (9 grams/litre) is low and the liqueurs are not aged, so that they do not influence the wine’s character and purity.
||Around 3 years on the yeast, much longer than the 15 month legal minimum.
||Ideal as an aperitif before a good meal. Puff pastry, hors d’oeuvres and pork-butchery. Seafood and grilled or steamed fish, roast poultry and white meats.
