All the know-how of our firm is revealed in its ability to reproduce each year a blend which is consistent in style and in quality. Elegant and refined, the cuvee Brut Reserve is the champagne of all occasions. The Brut Reserve is a blend in equal parts of the three champenois grape varieties: pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay from 30 different crus. 25% reserve wines are used to produce this cuvee: - The Pinot Noir (bringing structure, body and power) is mainly produced from some of the best crus of the Montagne de Reims. - The Pinot Meunier (ensuring freshness, roundness and fruitiness) is issued from several crus from the Vallee de la Marne and from the Epernay area. - The Chardonnay (adding its aromatic complexity, finesse, elegance and lightness) comes from Epernay and some of the best crus of the Cote des Blancs. After four years ageing in our cellars, its style combines complexity, balance and distinction. Technical notes Once harvested, the grapes are immediately and delicately pressed. The must undergoes a first debourbage (settling) at the press house and a second in our winery, a froid (at 6°C) over a 24 hour period. The alcoholic fermentation takes place at a low temperature (18°C) in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, with each variety and the production of each village kept separate until final blending. All our wines go through a malolactic fermentation. After tasting, blending and bottling, the secondary fermentation (prise de mousse) and maturing take place in the cool atmosphere of our cellars located 33 metres below street level. Each bottle is given a traditional remuage (hand riddling) before disgorging and dosage, and the wines rest for a minimum of three months before being released.
Other text Each of the wines which bears our name is treated as an impeccable ambassador of our history. For five generations, the descendants have been equally demanding, remaining loyal to the strategy initiated from the very beginning by the firm’s founder. Excellence means the rigorous selection of the vinegrowers the firm works with, but also by strict selection of the grapes bought from them. Family members keep a close eye on all the operations, including details of the vinification; it also means that the family, in complete independence, chooses the blends which give birth to the wines. Excellence and independence are closely linked. One guarantees the continuing existence of the other and vice versa.
Food pairing The structure and vinosity, elegance and freshness, captured in this Brut Reserve offer an optimum balance between power and finesse, making it a remarkable wine to be served as an aperitif, or to accompany a whole meal.
