On the nose aromas of lemon and grapefruit, combined with the richness of firm, fleshy fruits such as white peaches, apricots and tart apples bring freshness and liveliness to the wine. These are followed by hints of vanilla, enriched with caramel. Honeyed nuts also play their part.
The bubbles are rich on the palate, but never overpowering. The perfect balance is combined with a rounded, full vinosity. The mix of fresh fruit and caramel aromas give even more intensity to the finish. This is a subtly balanced wine with a remarkable capacity to linger in the mouth.
Dominated by a backbone of top quality Pinot Noir, this flagship cuvée is an assemblage of up to 77 different vineyards with a high proportion of reserve wines of up to five different vintages to create a fresh, yet rich and complex champagne. All the great terroirs of the Champagne region are represented in the blend: the Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne, Vallée de l'Ardes, Côte des Blancs, Sézannais, and Aube. Many of the wines behind the splendour of Cordon Rouge are sourced from Grands Crus and Premiers Crus within the Champagne region, classed at 90% to 100% on the Cru scale.
