Product description

This unique cuvée, which is entirely vinified in oak, is composed of the three Champenois grape varieties. It totally masters the art of blending by renewing the ancestral spirit and savoir-faire of the original champagnes. Formulation Composed of the three Champenois grape varieties in equal proportions: Premier and Grand Cru Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs Premier and Grand Cru Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims, Aÿ and Mareuil-sur-Aÿ Pinot Meunier from the right bank of the Vallée de la Marne Vinification and aging take place in oak casks at low temperature From 30% to 35% reserve wines Aging on lees: 6 to 7 years Appearance: A radiant yellow crystalline appearance with golden glints brought to life by a luminous stream of persistent, fine bubbles. Aroma: There is a rich olfactory impact which is harmoniously expressed (dried fruits, fresh citrus and white flesh fruits) and coupled with finely buttered seductive notes. Palate: A burst of flavors (notes of grilled brioche and toffee) thanks to the distinguished power and maturity which is a mark of any great wine of Champagne. Tasting: Its strength of character and integrity make it an ideal accompaniment to poultry dishes or chanterelle mushrooms. Serve at: 10°C

FAQs

In the US, it is typically referred to as sparkling wine or California champagne. In Italy it is prosecco. In Spain they call it cava, and in Portugal it is espumante.
The average glass of Champagne is around 12% ABV (alcohol by volume) and usually comes in a four ounce serving, which means you'll get six full servings from a standard 750ml bottle.
Try adding a splash of juice like lemon, orange, or even cranberry to spice up cheaper Champagne. Elderflower liqueur is an ideal mixer for flavorful drinks, or you can add Chambord for a Kir Royale. Another possibility is to throw in a sugar cube, bitters and an orange peel for a classy, simple cocktail.  
Generally, the recommendation is to serve Champagne between 46°F and 50°F, but with certain wines you can let it warm up a tad more to bring out some additional flavors. You can either let it warm up in the glass, or get the bottle out of the fridge 20-30 minutes before serving if you'd like a slightly warmer temperature.
Standard white wine rules apply - keep it out of bright light, in a cool place where temperatures are as consistent as possible. For some that means a dedicated wine fridge or climate controlled cellar, but for most people just storing it in a dark closet or basement should be fine, especially if you're not planning to age it too long. For storage less than a month, it is fine for the bottles to be standing up, but plan to lay them down in a rack if you're storing it for any longer.
