Five generations have followed one another over time in Villenard in the Champagne region to give life to products that maintain their typicality. The vineyards are spread over 20 hectares. Claude Nomine, the company’s winemaker for 35 years, composes each cuvèe by combining various vine extracts. Another peculiarity: the symbol of the company since 1968 is a young winemaker, a representation of a famous sculpture made by a member of the family and a well-known regional artist.
It is produced according to the so-called champenoise method or classic method, a method in which the wine substantially undergoes two different fermentations: the first, the alcoholic one (which it shares with the rest of the wines) takes place in vats for fermentation; the second instead takes place directly in the bottle and ensures that during this second procedure, thanks to particular yeasts, the wine also develops carbon dioxide (which will then give life to the famous bubbles when uncorked).
Straw yellow color with golden hues. On the nose aromas of brioche and honey, with fresh and wild floral notes. On the palate it has an elegant minerality and strong complexity.
It goes well with dishes such as scallop nut carpaccio, roasted sea bass and simply for aperitifs.
