Belemnita is an exclusive and confidential selection of Grand Cru Chardonnay grapes from the vines in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, some of which were planted in 1929. The harvest takes no shortcuts: carefully selecting each bunch of grapes grown on a one-of-a-kind terroir. This cuvée owes its name to the fossils, the belemnite rostra (Belemnita Quadrata in Latin) found in the chalky soil of Le Mesnil, formed in the tertiary period. This exceptional cuvée undergoes no blending. It is therefore the purest expression of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger???s renowned terroir. This wine is aged for at least 6 years in the heart of our cellars, at a constant temperature of 12°C. This champagne has an extra-brut dosage, allowing its true nature to shine through. Crafted only the years producing grapes with outstanding characteristics, this cuvée is an inimitable interpretation of our best parcels selected in Le Mesnil.
A brilliant and crystalline wine. Its effervescence is steady and vivacious. Strings of tiny bubbles rise to the surface, nurturing a persistent and creamy cordon of foam. Its aromatic bouquet is complex: smoky, grilled, nutty (hazelnut and cashew) and candied, all underlined by a touch of acacia honey. Its fleshy and welcoming palate greets you with an elegant vanilla warmth and a buttery touch then opens up to dried fruit and candied citrus (lemon, grapefruit) notes. Its fatty, supple beginning paves the way for a vivaciously mineral and wonderfully lasting finish.
