    The vines here average 50 years of age, planted on the steep hillside of Montagnieu in soils of marl and limestone rubble, overlying a limestone base.  Vinified in cuve and bottled last July, it is now beginning to open out.  You’ll find quince, honey, acacia blossom, a touch of liquorice, peach and exotic fruits.  It has an excellent structure, quite tense, with very precise detailed fruit and a lovely streak of acidity.  For drinking now to 2020.

    Some vines here were planted pre-1900 and the rest between 1972 to 2003 with 1.20h in total.  Tends to thrive where altesse doesn’t and vice versa!  Not destalked and macerated in an open cuve for ten days, it was then cuve aged for eight months.  Deep dark colour, but judicious extraction of black forest fruits. After six months in bottle it develops a beautiful bouquet, peony, cinnamon, black pepper and numerous spices, and its youthful, initially angular tannins round out and become velvety and harmonious. Available November. For drinking now to 2020.

    This sparkling wine has real vinosity and much more quality and character than most other sparkling wines. It is made 100% from 2014, in this cuvée, vinified in cuve, and aged for 12 months sur lattes with a 6.5g/l dosage. Very fine mousse, saline and long on the finish, the ripe red fruits from mondeuse noire give the wine a delicious lift.
