The champagnes are regulared selected by specialist press.

Wine: Champagne Desbordes Amiaud 1er Cru Brut Tradition is terribly tasty. The success of this Champagne is measured by the balanced established between the very ripe grape and the integration of the bubbles. Neithre invasive nor heady, here the bubbles are perfectly bonded to a fresh, unctuous texture on the palate. This pure 'winemaker' product represents the good drinking enjoyment value for money that we like to see.

Vinification: Hand harvested, all grapes are from the estate's vineyards, traditional vinification, cellar aging.

Color: Golden colour.

Nose: Aromas of acacia, pine needles and hawthorn combined with quince jam.

Palate: On the palate, this champagne has beautiful balance. We find the taste of fresh almond with a honeyed finish.

Temperature: Serve between 8 and 10°C

Food and wine pairing: Suits all occasions perfectly (ceremonies, celebrations, etc), desserts, aperitifs,..

Cellar aging: Drink now

"From the vine to the Champagne glass", the work is traditional and exclusively carried out on the estate. This 9 hectare estate, close to the town of Reims, is located at the foot of the Montagne de Reims.
