Cuvée Douceur - Grand Cru

Originally developed to satisfy the tradition of Champagne at the end of a meal, with red fruit desserts (figs, pears, small red fruits), this Cuvée is also perfectly at home with foie gras, to start a festive meal with a light touch.

The story

The majority part of a very structured and fruity Pinot Black envelope a smaller proportion of bright Chardonnay which guarantee longevity.

The vintage

Assembly of the year and grape variety. The amount of assembled wine is twice the volume bottled, the remaining part is kept in tanks as a base to assemble the next. Thus in time, you will find the "homemade taste" perfectly reproduced that characterizes this wine.
