Varietal: 60% Gamay, and 40% Poulsard. The grapes are picked by hand, pressed and fermented in cold vats. After a light filtration that leaves most of the active yeast in the unfinished wine, it is bottled and continues its fermentation in the bottle. It is more vinous (with grapey primary aromas) than most Champagne, since there is neither dosage nor addition of yeast before the second fermentation. Follows the technique of Méthode Ancestrale.

Taste: The Poulsard gives the wine a lighter, dryer feel, even though the sugar level remains about the same. The color is a clear raspberry in the glass. The nose also shows aromas of red/blue fruits along with swaths of healthy grass, citrus peel, dark flowers and a distant note of Alpine spice. That same medley of berries is present on the palate, with the addition of  a slightly rounder/creamier flavor of cherry and a hint of blood orange. On the tongue, the wine is clean and zesty, with soft bubbles, medium acidity. The dashing mineral core combines well with refreshingly demi-sec finish. 8% ABV
