Millésime 2008

Cœur de gamme

AVAILABLE IN
  • 75cl / 150cl

This vintage champagne highlights the expression and generous character of the 2008 vintage, combining freshness and sunshine.

A balanced blend of 10 Premier and Grand Cru villages selected during the 2008 harvest. 50% Pinot Noir gives wine its structure, thanks to Mailly- Champagne, Ambonnay, Louvois or Chigny-les-Roses Crus. 40% Chardonnay from iconic villages as Vertus and Avize, brings richness, softness and elegance. The Villers-Marmery Premier Cru completes the blend and adds a mineral dimension along with a touch of smoke. 10% Meunier rounds off the blend with richness and smoothness.

The freshnesss of the Millesime 2008 makes this wine ideal for aperitif drinking or pairing with salty tapas and seafood such as razor clams, an emulsion of rockfish or salmon marinated in lemon.

In order to give the wine even greater richness and complexity, the Millesime 2008 is aged for at least 8 years in our centennial cellars, dug deep into the chalk.

Appearence

Bright, luminous hue flecked with lemon-yellow tints and displaying fine, lively bubbles.

Nose

Mineral and iodized on the first nose, mixed with notes of lemon, quince and brioche, alongside scents of linden, acacia and fresh verbena. After aeration, the champagne reveals aromas of limestone, liquorice, blackcurrant and pomelo.

Palate

Clean and fresh on entry, followed by pulpy fruit underpinned by the zingy acidity of lemon and pomelo. The wine is mineral, clean and saline on the mid-palate. The freshness, typical of the vintage and the iodized seaspray, create a tasty finish, full of the pure, delicate flavours of grape pulp, set against a citrus backdrop.
