"Our award-winning No.1 Assemblé, means to bring together, to blend and to unite. The structure of Chardonnay, the finesse of Pinot Noir and the softness of Meunier have been brought together for a minimum of 18 months on lees, in the classic Méthode Traditionelle style, to create a wine with elegance, complexity and wide appeal. Composition: 60% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir, 5% Pinot Meunier." Winery

"A classic blend of Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir and Meunier – presents aromas and flavours of white peaches and apples, pears and sweet lemon. A calm yet rounded and gently spicy leesy autolysis with a developing complexity. Dry, weighty, fruity, fleshy and leesy with fruit flavours that reflect the nose. Balanced and poised for more development in your cellar, but totally drinkable today as an aperitif or with cured salmon, charcutérie or cold chicken cuts." 94/100 Cameron Douglas MS

Excellent Cameron Douglas MS

"This is immediately appealing on the nose showing fresh strawberry, stone fruit, apple and yeasty characters, followed by a delightfully expressed palate that is bright and vibrant with fine texture and lively acidity. Beautifully harmonious and soothing, this is charming and delectable. A blend of three classic Champagne grapes: chardonnay (60%), pinot noir (35%), pinot meunier (5%), and matured on lees for 18 months." 5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
