40% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier from prime vineyards throughout Champagne, with approximately 50% coming from the Taittinger estate, such as the vineyards at Château de la Marquetterie. The finished blend includes over 30 crus.
Aged on its lees for at least 4 years, often longer, before being disgorged. A dosage of 17.5g of cane sugar per litre is then added (twice that of the Brut Réserve).
Pale yellow in colour with delicate fine bubbles. The nose is subtle, fresh and reminiscent of white blossom and ripe fruit, with overtones of yellow peaches and dried apricots. On the palate it is soft, fresh and mellow with delicate floral and ripe fruit flavours. The aftertaste is long and soft with a subtle sweetness. All in all it is rounded, rich and well balanced, smooth and creamy.
