BELEMNITA is an exclusive and confidential selection of Grand Cru Chardonnay grapes from the vines in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, some of which were planted in 1929. The harvest takes no shortcuts: carefully selecting each bunch of grapes grown on a one-of-a-kind terroir. This cuvée owes its name to the fossils, the belemnite rostra (Belemnita Quadrata in Latin) found in the chalky soil of Le Mesnil, formed in the tertiary period. This exceptional cuvée undergoes no blending. It is therefore the purest expression of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger’s renowned terroir. This wine is aged for at least 6 years in the heart of our cellars, at a constant temperature of 12°C. This champagne has an extra-brut dosage, allowing its true nature to shine through. Crafted only the years producing grapes with outstanding characteristics, this cuvée is an inimitable interpretation of our best parcels selected in Le Mesnil.
The copious and persistent mousse at pouring slowly diminishes making room for a surface of delicate bubbles.
A brilliant and crystalline wine of a pale yellow hue with hints of green.
Its aromatic bouquet is complex: smoky, grilled, nutty (hazelnut and cashew) and candied, all underlined by a touch of acacia honey. Its fleshy and welcoming palate greets you with an elegant vanilla warmth and a buttery touch then opens up to dried fruit and candied citrus (lemon, grapefruit) notes.
On the palate, its attack is crisp, evoking its fresh citrus nose. The finish is satisfyingly long, underscored by lemon zests and the mineral cut inherent to its terroir.
