TASTING :
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.

PAIRING : 
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.
