Characteristics
Grand Heritage, is an interesting venture of our ‘savoir faire’.
This 2006 Vintage Cuvée is blended with a majority of Chardonnay (60%) bringing its minerality and freshness and also benefits from the structure and fruit of the Pinot Noir (20%) and Meunier (20%).
Grapes are harvested on plots of land selected for the age of their vines and the quality of their soil. No pesticides or herbicides are used, it is just organic fertilisation.
It is fermented 9 months in 350 litre oak barrels and matured ‘sur lie’ until it reaches its peak and can fully express its terroir.
There is no malolactique fermentation and the natural acidity and citrus notes of the Chardonnay are gently balanced with discreet vanilla and creamy notes exacerbated by the barrels.

Tasting
Visual: Straw yellow with green tints, creamy white foam, fine bubbles and enduring effervescence forming a significant cordon.

Palate: very complex range of complimentary flavours characterised by freshness and finesse.
