Displaying a luminous golden-yellow color with a continuous thread of delicate, pinpoint bubbles, this all Chardonnay Blanc the Blanc offers an ultra-refined level of purity and intensity. A citrus, apple and butter nose blends with the aromatic hints of fresh almonds and candied lemon. The palate impression is utterly clean and precise, its creaminess punctuated only by airy clouds of bubbles. This 100% Chardonnay cuve%u0301e is made using the Co%u0302te des Blancs signature crus: Avize, Cramant, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger and Vertus. Reserve wines constitute a full 40% of the blend.
With an unusually high portion of Chardonnay for a Rosé, this Rosé is exceptionally refined. Brilliant salmon in color with pale pink highlights, this opens with red berry and citrus aromas, followed on the palate by melting flavors of light raspberry, strawberry and a hint of Corton-like minerality. Finishes quite crisp and dry. This Rose%u0301 is a blend of over 85% Chardonnay from the main Cote des Blanc crus of Avize, Cramant, Mesnil-sur-Oger, and Vertus, with Pinots Noirs of the Montagne de Reims, including a small percentage (5 to 6%) vinified as a red wine. The blend contains 40% reserve wine.
