Grapes were sourced from over 50 crus within Côte des Blancs, Montagne de Reims,Vallée de la Marne and Côte des Bar regions, in mid-September. An early harvest, starting late August, yieled remarkable quantities of fruit in the vineyards, with three excellent grape varieties. The resulting base wine is fleshy, rich and intense, with a delicate freshness.
