A 50–50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, this is a fruity wine that also has a strongly tangy zesty character. It comes from vines on the Montagne de Reims, a rich source of great fruit that shows strongly in this Champagne. The bottling is still young and will benefit from another few months aging, so drink from 2018.
