Blanc de blancs (made from white grapes)

This cuvée was inspired by one of the great Burgundy wine palates, an outstanding professional wine taster.

The Golden Triangle
An original blend of three appellations in which the notes of the grape variety have fun interpreting the terroir, blending their personalities until they elegantly become one. Its name pays homage to the triad of "holy" villages in the Côte de Beaune: Saint-Aubin, Saint-Romain, and the Mâconnais Saint-Véran. The soil, with limestone marl intertwined with banks of clay, gives a fresh harvest, a condition for excellence.

The incomparable brilliance of Chardonnay
This 100% Chardonnay, the king of the great white wines of the Côte de Beaune, expresses the strength drawn from these very nearby terroirs, enhanced by very long ageing, partly in oak barrels. One third, one third, one third: the exact proportions of this unparalleled blend.

A complex trail
Intense golden yellow colour, crystal clear, very fine bubbles.
Beautiful aromatic intensity: white flowers, ripe fruit, dried fruit, butter.
Body: soft, enveloped bubbles, smoothness, roundness
Palate: fresh, mineral attack
Flavours: white flowers, almond, then brioche and honey

The liveliness and tannins, from the oak, give power.
This vinous crémant finally reveals vanilla and oaky notes, nuanced according to the vintage.

Elegant combinations: such elegance deserves fine flavours: foie gras, scallop ravioli, avocado and salmon, or even gingerbread!

Bewitching harmony

The 2012 harvest offered grapes worthy of a great vintage. The most promising was the Chardonnay: perfect acidity, aromas and fruit, lively, very fresh, allowing less dosage.
Even more rigorous initial pressing kept the character of the fruit as intact as possible, with the bitterness gone thanks to a more precise natural clarification.
Its very long ageing period of nine years, partly in oak barrels, enabled it to achieve rare aromatic complexity.

Intense golden yellow colour, crystal clear, very fine bubbles.
Beautiful aromatic intensity, surprising youthfulness.
Mineral notes of chalk then white flowers and almond, brioche and honey.
On the palate, the liveliness and tannins give power, accompanied by vanilla and oaky notes.
