VISUAL ASPECT : golden colour with the greenish tints so typical of a Blanc de Blancs, extremely fine bubbles, delicate foam.
NOSE : makes a delicious impression with its initial floral scents followed by rich white fruit aromas.
ON THE PALATE : a fleshy, full-bodied wine with buttery flavours - the unique expression of those renowned Chouilly Chardonnays. A lingering, long-lasting finish.
This Cuvee is a grand tribute to that uniquely fleshy, buttery character of Chouilly. The vinification process is very traditional, partly in barrels, and further accentuates the typical character of this famous terroir.Thanks to long ageing for at least 4 years, the lightest of dosages is possible at 5 g/l, thereby magnifying the wine and preserving all its natural freshness.
|this cuvee makes a superbly generous aperitif, and is ideal served with more delicate fish dishes such as scallops with a hint of dill, vanilla and a light emulsion sauce, steamed prawns, hot oysters with julienne vegetables, or a langoustine carpaccio…
The buttery character of the Chardonnay requires that it be served chilled but not ice-cold, ideally at 10 to 11 °C.
