VISUAL ASPECT : A deep, brilliant golden colour, clear and radiant. The foam is dense, light and harmonious, with many columns of fine bubbles ascending quickly in the glass.
NOSE : The first sensation on the nose is mild and rounded, leading into hints of white fruit (apple and pear).
A plethora of aromas strike a harmonious balance between white/yellow/red fruit (apple, pear, plum and redcurrant), citrus (lemon and grapefruit), blossom (honeysuckle and acacia), dried fruit, infusions (lime), pastry (brioche and kugelhopf)and minerals (chalk).
ON THE PALATE : The attack is as mild, smooth and fresh as you could wish, providing the perfect reflection of the bouquet. The stewed fruit flavours are intense and the reserve wines offer a lovely full impression. Long-lasting flavours finishing on a fruity, mineral note with a hint of citrus.
Wine Spectator 90 points - Open-knit and fresh, this accessible sparkler offers a lively bead and a citrusy overtone to the flavors of poached apple, gingersnap biscuit and sliced almond. Drink now. 20,000 cases made.

The Cuvee Intense is a very harmonious blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier from only the very best hillsides in the Epernay region, with a proportion of almost 10% of wines from barrels.
Well balanced and fruity, it is a very classical wine.
Aged for a minimum of two and a half years in the cellars, it is dosed at about 6 g/l.
