This fantastic vintage from Denis Patoux blends all three grape varieties to create an aromatic champagne with deep flavours of honey, caramel and toffee apple. Aged for 15 years, this champagne is a fine example of a great vintage year and is perfect for stronger foods. From the Vallée de la Marne, Vandières.
A champagne oozing elegance and finesse, surprisingly fresh for a 2002, although we feel this is a very present characteristic of this year compared to others. A light champagne, with apple and elderflower notes, developing into dark chocolate aromas on the nose and a crisp, minerality on the palate. Great with smoked salmon or bacon, cutting through the saltiness! From Bouzy in the Marne. Winner of 2* Guide Hachette 2014, a remarkable wine.
