  • This sparkling wine has elegant, small bubbles and smells like flowers such as honeysuckle and hawthorn, as well as lemon tree. You'll also notice toasted notes, almond, and ripe, red fruits. It feels lively and gentle in your mouth, and has a refreshing, fruity finish.

Honouring the family's commitment to sustainability, the vat room combines photovoltaic solar panels, a rainwater harvesting system and a green wall for heat insulation. Vinification takes a parcel by parcel approach, separating as much as possible individual villages, varieties and terroirs. The grapes were hand-harvested and fermented with selected yeasts at temperatures of 18°C in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic conversion resulted in a softer mouthfeel. 2% of this wine was matured in second use French oak. This wine did not have any lees contact and following natural clarification and stabilisation; the wine underwent secondary fermentation in bottle. This cuvee was bottled aged for five to six years. Dosage: 4g/l.

Elegant, fine bubbles lead to floral aromas of honeysuckle, hawthorn and lemon tree, underpinned by toasted notes, almond and ripe, red fruits. Lively yet delicate on the palate, with a crisp and fruity finish.

Measures are taken to combat the run-off of rain water, to limit the pollution of both underground and superficial water; grass cover crops are grown and processes to combat soil erosion are employed. Biodiversity is positively encouraged, sustainable fertilisers are used and sexual confusion of predators takes place instead of insecticides. The plots and weather conditions encountered are carefully monitored, with soil testing and cartographic, computerised methods in place for full traceability of products used in the plots. Above all, preventative measures are in place to minimise the use of
products, which if necessary, are carefully chosen to have the least impact on the environment.
