Cuvee Louis

 A paean of respect for nature and tradition, the Cuvee Louis draws you into its profoundly truthful universe. Being cask fermented, it has a complex structure and its unique bouquet allies power and richness, balance and generosity.

Harvest: 1999 (85%) + 1998-1997-1996 (15%)

Grapes: 50% Chardonnay 50% Pinot Noir

Terroirs: Vineyard "Les Crayons" in Oeuilly (Marne valley). Chalk. 65-yrs old vines.

Vinification: Vinification in 4-wine oak barrels. No malolactic fermentation. Barrel fermentation with the lees regularly stirred back into the wine. Remains in barrels until May.

Bottling: May 2000

Disgorging: See date on rear label. Manual.

Dosage: 3 g/L - Extra-Brut

To the eye, golden yellow robe, deeper hints, finely crystalline mousse.

Nose: Generous and powerful, with woody, appetising hints (of dried fruit, vanilla, grilled).

Mouth: Superb, full, round and complex. Palate sweetly honeyed. A broad, mature and vinous wine, with good cellaring potential.

Food & Wine: An exceptional champagne for rare and special moments, for Haute Cuisine. The Cuvee Louis is the champagne par excellence to accompany your moments of contemplation.
