"The N ° 740 enters the legend." RVF Guide 2018
Built mainly around the superb 20 vintage wines. Disgorged in July 2016.
Cuvee No. 740 ♦ 20, our harvest to Aÿ, Dizy, Hautvillers, Avize and Oiry: winter is long and cold, spring and early summer are very wet and there is strong attacks of mildew. But the end of season great allows a harvest of remarkable quality and small performance. The harvest is completed by some reserve wine.
The concept of the cuvée 700 is unique in Champagne and is located opposite the raw without year! We strive for excellence rather than regularity, respecting the character of the vintage rather than its negation and putting forwards a great wine rather than maintaining a style. The contribution of reserve wines is done to enhance the complexity but without concealing the nature of the base year. It is for these reasons that it was useless to continue the development of a vintage wine that would have made that impoverish the cuvée 700.
It comes from our three great vintages and our two Premiers Crus, it is developed only from the first press juice, it is vinified in casks, almost always without filtration, it is above all a great wine of Champagne. It has of course a remarkable potential for aging, and that's why we offer with two different maturation.
