Pale gold in color with a very fine mousse, the wine is aromatic on the nose. On the palate, it is well balanced and shows great finesse and complexity.
Pinot Noir and Chardonnay bring vinosity and delicacy together in a very harmoniously balanced blend.
The complement of Pinot Meunier adds a charming touch of fruitiness and liveliness.
More than 2,5 years on the lees. Rests in the cellars for at least 3 months after disgorgement.
Pairing with food
Delicious as an aperitif, Brut Majeur is also the perfect wine to serve throughout a meal. It will pair perfectly with sea food, scallops, lobster, crab, fresh or grilled fish, fish terrines, salmon or beef carpaccio, as well as with sushi and Asian cuisine.
Brut Majeur also goes along extremely well with white meats, hot pot ("potée champenoise") and white pudding ("boudin blanc").
