Grand Héritage 2007

Grand Heritage, is an interesting venture of our ‘savoir faire’.
This 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.
“A rich and opulent style, with great intensity of flavour.”
The nose is incredibly generous, with intense notes of candied lemon, toffee apple, brioche, almond croissant and honeycomb. The vibrant acidity provides a lift on the palate, supporting more savoury flavours of toast and truffle, with a chalky minerality evolving on the finish. The mousse is very fine and delicate – sensational.
Food pairing: Such a decadent Champagne deserves a food pairing that is equally indulgent. Pair with mushroom ravioli adorned with truffle shavings, duck parfait or aged comté with quince jelly.
