This is made from 75% Le Mesnil Chardonnay blended with 25% Pinot Noir from Grand Cru vineyards in Ambonnay. 8 g/L dosage.  Copper with slight pink notes in color, clear, bright and with a moderate amount of small bubbles.  The nose is delicate but persistent with strawberries and slight cherries.  Plenty of minerality.  Medium bodied.  On the palate, strawberries and black cherries with lots of minerality.  Tart, especially on the finish.  Very food friendly, this would work well with fried chicken or popcorn, too.  Drink within five years of purchase.
