"This NV Blanc de Noirs Noire Réserve Brut is based on 2009 (55%, with 45% Réserve wines from different vintages), was disgorged in September 2013 and is 95% Pinot Meunier with 5% Pinot Noir. Its clear and remarkably aromatic bouquet features aromas of elder flowers, hop, oranges and dates coated with smoked speck. Full-bodied, pure and elegant on the palate, this is a well balanced and firmly structured Champagne with a stimulating and persistent finish. Drink soon because the follower (based on 2010 and with 90% Meunier) is ready to be uncorked."
