Following the Champagne tradition of the past centuries, the Authentique cuvée has grown and been raised under cork for many years. This particular breeding favors the micro-oxygenation of the wine and develops the power and the finesse of its aromas. This "cork-staple" sealing technique requires manual work; especially during the disgorgement.

Tasting notes

The Champagne displays a fluid and shiny raspberry pink colour, with orange-pink highlights and a lively stream of refined bubbles. It suggests both freshness and full of nuances.

The first nose reveals toasty notes with scents of raspberry, strawberry, liquorice, almond. When aerated it evolves towards aromas of blackcurrant, redcurrant, blood orange, pomelo, rose, peach, marzipan, peppermint, wet chalk.

The approach on the palate is supple and fresh with a creamy effervescence. The Champagne develops pulpy and velvety matter well sustained by a fresh acidity reminding those of pomelo. The middle mouth is orchestrated by chalky minerality, enhances fruity freshness and vinous coating. The finish is full and savory, with a charmer tactile feel and minty aromas that prolongs enjoyment and invites to share.
