Produced in limited quantities, Le Blanc de Blancs draws out all of the elegance and the purity of the Chardonnay of the Côte des Blancs. A signature blend, of 3 Grands Crus complemented by a selection of remarkable Premiers Crus.

Its style is both pure and creamy, Le Blanc de Blancs is a real ode to Chardonnay. This is Caroline Latrive’s signature cuvée. Its special bottle, promotes the development of the organoleptic profile during the 6 years of ageing on lees in the cellars.

COLOUR: Bright with white gold glints and a very fine bubble.

NOSE: Great aromatic freshness, fizzy notes, orange blossom, yuzu zest, white peach and a hint of ginger. 

PALATE: Fresh and lively start, broad and generous, white fruits, acacia honey, touch of pastry, citrus fruits, silky texture, long and persistent finish, chalky minerality.

FOOD PAIRINGS: The ultimate epicurean aperitif, Le Blanc de Blancs 2014 also pairs marvellously with a lemony sea bream ceviche, a prawn risotto, or a braised veal with rosemary.
