A grand Champagne with character from the Cote des Blancs terroirs, specifically from Le Mesnil sur Oger (limestone parcels averaging 65 years of age). This jewel of the Charlemagne house, produced from first press Grand Cru juice, with rigorous vinification, partially in oak barrels without malolactic fermentation, and a very light dosage of 4 grams per liter. Matured 5 to 6 years in chalk underground cellars.
Pale yellow with green hues. Persistant mousse with very fine bubbles. Powerful yet elegant nose dominated by acacia honey eventually shows notes of candied lemon, smoke and a blend of pepper. Unctuous, lightly oaked and complex on the palate.
