THE ART OF BLENDING
The exceptionally high proportion of chardonnay (50%), balanced to perfection with pinot (45% pinot noir and 5% pinot meunier) can be thanked for the unique character of this Champagne. More than 25 cru wines from the finest Champagne terroirs in Cotes des Blancs and Montagne de Reims make up the blend, together with 30% of precious reserve wines.
All these elements allow Laurent Fresnet, Cellar Master, to create the ultimate blend, and year after year recreate, with amazing consistency, this unique signature style.
Each bottle is then left to rest for more than 3 years in the cool, calm surrounds of our cellars in Reims.
The Brut Souverain blend also contains a small quantity of our prestige Cuve 38 Champagne. This wine, made in the style of a perpetual reserve crafted exclusively from Grand Cru chardonnay, is unique to the Champagne House and expresses its quintessential savoir-faire and originality.

On the nose, the Champagne offers magnificent, vivacious character. Citrus fruit aromas are
followed by a cavalcade of floral bouquets, elderberry and vine blossom. Delicious brioche
notes and the simplicity of lightly toasted bread and roasted almonds.
Well balanced and harmonious on the palate, summoning flavours of brioche, together with
crunchy cherries and the sun-kissed blush of white peach. Clean on the finish, with all the
freshness of just-picked walnuts.
