DESCRIPTION

Estate vines of 35-60 years old in Moussy in Pierry, south of Epernay. It has been fermented in old oak barrels and aged for 10 months in them before being bottled and aged on the lees for 7 years. The wine has a pale color, with a spring of tiny bubbles and a nose of sweet spice cake and fragrant white flowers. This is elegant, restrained Champagne with a very long, gentle finish. It should keep for more than a decade, but will certainly make any occasion between now and then special!
