The vineyards sit on the undulating land, over the white calcareous soils. These famous chalky soils are finely structured and more porous than other soil types, with the looser structure enabling the absorption of minerals by the vine, whilst also providing excellent drainage.
Made in the traditional manner, with the secondary fermentation taking place in the bottle, it has spent a minimum of three years ageing on its fine lees. The dosage is 10g/l.
The Bernard Remy Blanc de Blancs Champagne has a delightful mousse and is full of fresh and intense flavours. It doesn't dominate in the mouth and has a subtle persistency. Soft on the palate it is led by powerful citrussy flavours of lemon zest and a hint of honeydew melon. This 100% Chardonnay is refreshing and elegant with a lingering finish.
A great food wine, pairs well with a pan-fried veal fillet or a sole meunière
