After many hot years, 2010 was presenting itself in Champagne as the coldest year since 1995, until the arrival of higher temperatures and heavy rainfall in August. A difficult year , with an early harvest to avoid the threat of botrytis. Although much of Pinot Noir had been lost, the Maison believed that the challenge still had to be taken up , because Chardonnay looked like one of the best in the last 40 years . It will be precisely these grapes, characterized by a perfect balance between sweetness and acidity , to create a fascinating blend with Pinot Noir preserved by botrytis, also in ideal ripening conditions. A balance of white and black grapes made even more precious by the careful selection .

Chef de Cave Vicent Chaperon describes it as follows: “The sweetness of tropical fruit shines immediately on the nose: green mango, melon and pineapple. Then more temperate notes emerge: the tingling of an orange peel, the mist of a mandarin . The wine breathes and its freshness is revealed . Flowering after the rain. A tactile sensation of peony, jasmine and lilac. On the palate, the wine quickly reveals its full, rich, intense character . An interesting maturation and a tactile sensation follow the aromatic experience. On the palate the matter takes shape, generous, decisive, controlled. Then it strengthens, making the wine vibrate on spicy and peppery notes . The energy continues, until a magnificent saline ending . "
