    L'Hommée is a former agricultural measure used before the time of Napoleon equivalent to the surface of vines that a man could work in one day: one Hommée equals 3.33a (333m2). Réserve de l'Hommée is made with the domaine’s oldest parcels which were once measured in this way. This cuvee comes from the two Premier Cru Villages of Vrigny and Pargny les Reims. The Chardonnay has been aged in oak barrels for seven months whereas the PN and the PM have been aged in cuve. The malos are completed and the wine spent five years sur lattes. Here again, the mousse is very subtle with tiny bubbles. The nose brings notes of brioche, cherry, raspberry, spices and vanilla. The mouth is precise and balanced. Long and complex finish, with notes of citrus fruit and apple. The dosage of 6g/l is low enough to let the firm minerality sit in the foreground with the fruit playing a supporting role. For drinking now to 2020.
