The fruity predominance of the Meunier gives this champagne its structure while a hint of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay complete the blend. To ensure a consistent style from year to year and maintain the Carte d’Or quality, this cuvee includes a high percentage of reserve wines from several harvests (3 to 4 years). These wines are preserved in separate vats and respect the typicalities of each cru and year.
