ADVICE OF A PROFESSIONAL
To reveal all its aromas, Dominique reveals some tips :
Undosed Champagne (0 grams of sugar) and Extra Brut (2g/bottle). The ideal is to start tasting these wines at a temperature of 8 degrees, then let the bottle warm up (14°-16°) so that the aromas open up and allow you to discover all their complexities.
From the start of the meal or to accompany
your shellfish, fish and white meats, the old reserve and the Millésimes are ideal.
End of the meal :
or after the coffee, the 2012 Millésime and the Rosé Grand Cru will reveal all their roundness and their flavors.
