‘A Champagne this delicious at this price is an extremely rare find. It’s an easy drinking style, made mainly from Pinot Meunier’


Wine Enthusiast – 89 points

‘This bright elegant Champagne is from a family firm now run by three sisters. With its balance between acidity and ripe apple flavors, it is poised between bone dry and a richer Brut style. The wine is fruity although with a crisp mineral aftertaste.
