In keeping with the house style, this is a dry brut. It brings out freshness, tight crispness and taut minerality. The Champagne demands some further aging to soften its vibrant edge. Drink from 2022.

Dried honeysuckle, lemon, dried apple, praline, toasted almond and crushed stone on the nose. Mineral and linear with a medium body, sharp acidity and sleek bubbles. Fresh and dry. Chardonnay.
Right from the start, this wine is fresh and lively, it shows a dazzling youthful character, followed by a broad and appetizing palate of white fruit and acacia honey with subtle pastry and brioche overtones. The finish is long and persistent, revealing a touch of chalky minerality, a signature of the Côte des Blancs, along with hints of grapefruit, blood orange and a delicate salinity.
Le Blanc de Blancs 2015 is a great apéritif on its own. It will also pair perfectly with a sea bream ceviche with lemon, a prawn risotto or a veal braised with rosemary.
