VOLUPTE
Our aim with this Champagne Volupté each year is to provide the most beautiful expression of Chardonnay grown on the soil of Cumières. To preserve the unique character of the Chardonnay, this Champagne is blended differently every year. The chalk on which the Chardonnay vines are cultivated, confers all the elegance, finesse and minerality of this grape variety on this Champagne.

PAIRING :
Ideal partner for the aperitif, this Champagne Volupté can be associated with a very fine fish such as line caught sea-bass roasted or, why not, a goat’s cheese or a parmesan. After a few years in the cellar, enjoy this Champagne with a duck foie gras duck that has been semi-cooked or seared.
