This Champagne is a blend of 20% Chardonnay for elegance and finesse, 40% Pinot Noir for roundness and structure and 40% Pinot Meunier for fruitiness and soft supple character. It is the embodiment of a fresh yet full-bodied bubbly. Aromas of juicy pear and apricot merge and weave in a beguiling fusion around a mass of delicate bubbles, gradually unleashing their true character over time. Approachable and refreshing, it offers the complexity to be enjoyed with appetisers or a celebratory meal.  It retails for approximately R580 (750ml bottle).
