This Champagne Pureté, which is not dosed when it is disgorged, is distinguished by a stripped down authenticity. The detail and the integrity of this Champagne are as impressive as they are precise.

Harvested and sorted by hand. Traditional Coquard wine press. Plot-by-plot vinification in temperature-controlled enamelled steel vats; reserve wine partly kept in oak casks. Avoidance of malolactic fermentation.
The pure expression of the Pinot Meunier delivers fruit and fullness, with finesse and elegance provided by the accompanying grape varieties The perfect ripeness of the grapes gives this brut nature a spicy, iodised and smooth side that is punctuated by a pleasant freshness.
Undosed Champagne is always perfect as an aperitif, but when sampled with a few oysters, it
will transcend the iodine hints of the shellfish. Its sleek frame cries out for a cuisine that respects
unadulterated flavours, without artifice. Last but not least, perfectly mature brie from Meaux will
provide it with a pleasant companion at the end of a meal.
