Le Medaillon Cuvée Reserve Champagne
This exceptional Champagne is made with 80% Pinot Blanc, (which represents less than 0.5% of the vineyards’ production in the region), 10% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier grapes, and is aged 30 months in the Le Medaillon tradition.
Established more than 200 years ago and located at Celles-sur-Ource, in the Aube Valley close to Burgundy, the vineyard which produces Le Medaillon Champagne abounds with beautiful parcels of vines, well exposed and perched above Burgundy-quality soil (the exact territory was disputed by the County of Burgundy and County of Champagne, with the Comte de Champagne eventually establishing its right). The vines benefit from a base of chalky sediments with a clay-limestone surface layer - these conditions of soil, climate and the grapes themselves give Le Medaillon Champagne its unique flavor and bouquet, and the Champagne’s personality truly cannot be found anywhere else. The bottles are stored in a deep, cool cellar, which catalyzes a second fermentation in the bottle. Placed on their neck panels slightly inclined downwards (for the purpose of lowering the deposit to the neck of the bottle), the bottles are turned 1-3 times per day, for several weeks before they’re ready to be disgorged. Le Medaillon Cuvée Reserve is made with 80% Pinot Blanc, (which represents less than 0.5% of the vineyards’ production in the region), 10% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier grapes. The Cuvée Reserve product is a wholly tête de cuvée product, representing the most meticulously selected, expensive and highest quality Champagne in a Champagne house’s offerings. Le Medaillon Cuvée Reserve has a faint gold color and aroma of white fruits and flowers. The bittersweet palate leads to a vivacious finish complete with hints of fresh honey and sea breeze.
