A family estate set up in 1942, which has been run since 1997 by great-grandson Frédéric and his delightful wife Anouck. Having trained in Champagne and built a new temperature controlled winery they have also converted the estate to organic practices. The clean cooling air flowing down from the Alps keeps the vines and grapes healthy with an extended growing season.

£18.50 Per Bottle
Made according to the traditional method as in Champagne, from Clairette, Aligoté and a tiny amount of white Muscat grapes, it has extended bottle maturation in order to develop its aromatic complexity. Fine bubbles and a fresh nose with a touch of honeysuckle, hints of citrus, wax, candied fruits and spices on the palate with a long dry finish.
