Very charming with Picardy sole fillets or a leg of Monkfish with pepper, poultry, veal or even seafood. Best served chilled at 10°C.
The quality of the 2010 harvest was exceptional. Moreover, the existence of Chardonnay is highly unusual for the region, where we find essentially Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.This exceptional grape variety which grows on a Pinot’s soil creates a unique character for our wines that we would love for you to taste !”
We have chosen the special “Symphonie” bottle for our “Heritage” cuvée, which is available each year in limited quantities only. Each bottle is numbered and has been manually dressed with a double neck. The pewter collar can be easily removed to reveal an aesthetic golden sleeve, ideal for a refined service.
As this is one of the oldest wines, the presence of light crystals at the bottom of the bottle remains natural and safe.
