Selected yeasts, with fermentation in thermoregulated stainless steel to preserve the wine's freshness and fruit character. A perpetual reserve of wines (50%) from all the vintages dating from 1992 to the present day combined with 50% of vintage 2020 lend finesse and depth while guaranteeing consistent quality. Made from a blend of Pinot Meunier fruit from a selection of sites, this champagne gains additional complexity from at least three years of bottle ageing.

Pale gold colour, with an aromatic, pure nose of citrus and ripe yellow fruit as well as pastry- and vanilla-inflected yeasty notes. Fresh and dry on the palate, with fine bubbles and ample richness. This complex champagne ends long with fine brioche notes.

The estate has 7.25 hectares under vine, all situated in Vandières in the heart of the Marne Valley. Its 36 plots, mostly comprising old vines, grow on south- and south-east-facing slopes consisting of a patchwork of clay-limestone, chalk, sand and clay soils that make up a diverse and complex terroir.
