"Brut Tradition" Champagne is a blend of several vintages. It owes its roundness to the Pinot Noirs, its vinosity to the Pinot Meuniers and its freshness to the Chardonnays. Fermentation temperature: 18 °C. The grapes come from vines harvested at complete maturity.
The colour is clear and brilliant, with hints of green. Forms a thick, tight mousse when poured and leaves a delicate, long-lasting "necklace" of bubbles at the surface. The nose is elegant and floral but also very expressive and intense, revealing a certain finesse. There's a touch of mimosa, followed by citrus and ripened fruit. On the palate the attack is clear-cut, and the Champagne's bright freshness is complemented by notes of warm honey. The finish is pleasant and average in length.
