Eloge du Chardonnay 2010
The grapes for this Vinatage have been specially selected during an exceptional harvest in 2009. From older vines “vieilles vignes” with low production, conveniently located on “mi-coteau” with chalk layer. The long-term contact of the wine with the yeasts allows the wines to develop tertiary aromas.
The basic wines are made from this first partial selection, these give more concentration and must then successfully undergo a blind tasting (very strict). To finally give birth to this gem of the house.
This cuvée, in the preserved freshness, reveals a fascinating wine, sufficient, rich and powerful but elegant. Delicate aromas of exotic fruit in brioche tones.
Dosage (sugar): 3 g / l
Blend ratio: 100% Chardonnay

It is impossible to really taste an ice-cold wine. Champagne should therefore be served at a temperature between 6 ° and 10 ° C. More to the lower limit of this range for the Non-Vintage Champagnes and more to the upper limit for the Vintage Champagnes.
You can achieve this temperature by placing the bottle, which comes from a cellar with a temperature of 10 ° to 15 ° C, in a cooling bucket filled with ice and water for 20 minutes. At a temperature of 6 to 9 ° C, not only the odor and taste is at its best, but the pressure of the carbon dioxide has decreased to 1 atmosphere. This makes it easier to open the bottle without spilling.
You can also put the bottle of champagne in the fridge but this no longer than 10 days. In any case, place the bottle in the least cold part of the refrigerator.
Is the bottle not completely empty? No problem ! Some people think you should drink a bottle of champagne completely empty! You can simply close the bottle of champagne with a cork and keep the bottle in the fridge for 24 hours without any problems. With a special champagne cap it is even possible to keep the champagne sparkling for a few days.
