A rich yet elegant and searingly dry 100% pinot noir champagne with zero dosage. The Champenois say a magnum is the superior choice. With twice the volume of a standard bottle and the same neck size, there is less exposure to air and the champagne matures more slowly. Best enjoyed from the from the Lehmann Jamesse Prestige, Grand Champagne 45 handmade glass.

Produced using 100% Bouzy and Ambonnay pinot noir grapes, this champagne is a blanc de noirs. It has spent two and a half years on lees and 30% of the wine has been fermented in Sauternes barriques. It is the Grande Reserve cuvée of the House with zero dosage.
The fermentation in Sauternes barrels gives the champagne an illusion of sweetness, with a complex blend of spices and nuts and a hint of coffee. The minerality and rich effervescence expected from a Montagne de Reims blanc de noirs is pronounced, and the wine lingers beautifully on the palate.
Enjoy with freshly shucked oysters, served au naturel.
