Extra Brut Classic Method


After a long aging in the bottle, this sparkling wine presents a blend of elegance, freshness and harmonious complexity. Its perfect balance originates from Pinot Noir grapes, clone 386, grown in the winery’s own vineyards having a predominantly calcareous structure of unquestionable value, set on hillsides at 300 to 500 metres above sea level.

This is an excellent aperitif and accompanies all kinds of entrees.
