2011 was a difficult year in the Champagne region, as bad weather caused serious qualitative as well as quantitative disasters in the vineyard. But the protective microclimate of the north of the Montagne de Reims, where our vines are located, is such that this “cursed” harvest was able to create the perfect balance between acidity and sugar, and it offered a concentration of delicate and promising aromas of acacia for the Chardonnay and ripe fruit for the Pinots. Its ageing enhaces its intensity, complexity and vinosity to make a complete wine.
