The Reserve is a blend of 40% Pinot Meunier, 40% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir harvested from five different parcels. After a slow and gentle pressing in a traditional Coquard vertical press, the juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks. It undergoes a malo-lactic fermentation and then rests “sur lattes” for four years. The Champagne is finished with a dosage of 0g/l.
"The nose of Reserve champagne asserts a fruity richness with odors of cashew nuts, blackcurrant, stewed fruits (peach, red apple, pear). Stirring the glass gives it accents of tubers (parsnip), pineapple, lily, blackberry and candied lemon. Further ventilation reveals notes of iodine, acacia honey, snow peas, mango, peanuts, green olive, then fig, prune, pepper, and black tea infusion.
The approach on the palate is supple and fresh with a creamy effervescence. The sensation becomes pulpy on the fleshy red and yellow fruits, with a light tannic chewiness. Balance is ensured by a well-integrated acidity in a saline and iodized mineral frame. The overall texture is velvety, caressing with a tasty, tender and persistent finish, enhanced with good aromatic resonance."
