About the wine: Grower Champagne. 30% of the base wine is aged in oak barrel. Extra-Brut 4g/l dosage. Low Sulphur. Pinot Noir from the Buxeuil limestone terroir and Chardonnay grown on chalk in Montgueux. Disgorged 18/12/2019 as per engraving on the bottle. About 5,000 bottles are produced on the years when they decide to make a vintage cuvee.

Food match: Champagne is one of the most versatile wines to pair with food. We recommend anything from rich seafood dishes such as butter-sauced fish, lobster or earthy truffle dishes, duck and game meat. For cheese, match with a triple cream cheese, Goat cheese or an aged hard cheese such as Comte or Gouda.
