Ambre 1er Cru - 2016
100% Pinot Meunier, the Ambre embodies a distinctive style compared to Marne Valley Meuniers—fresh and lively, yet impressively precise. Old vines and chalky soils give it energetic citrus and spice notes, enhanced by savory depth on the finish. Combination of old vines and chalky soil translates into a very precise champagne, notes of citrus and soft spices. Mid-palate has a subtle energy that leads to a savory finish.
