Exquisitely beautiful Grand Cru Champagne made from 100% Chardonnay from Mesnil sur Oger and Oger. The fruit is taken only from the 'heart of the cuvee', that's to say the most luxurious part of the fruit that comes from the pressing. The luxury Champagne is aged in wooden barrels. It is absolutely amazing with a lovely texture. It's excellent with sushi as an aperitif and served with a fish course.


Tasting Notes

Collard-Picard is one of the most exciting houses in Champagne today, who is defintely at the forefront of quality. They are what's known as an independent grower. They have brilliant vineyard sites in Mensil, where they grow Chardonnay, and is home to a couple of Champagne's most famous cuvees, Krug Le Mesnil and Salon Mesnil. In the Marne they have a site regarded as one of the best for Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir. Collard-Picard age this Champagne in wood, which is very unusual, and harks back to the more traditional way of making great Champagne in the past. They do not do a malolactic fermentation to preserve character in the wine.
