A truly gastronomic Champagne marked by an ample texture and a complex aromatic bouquet. A superb illustration of the region’s Pinot Meunier. More info

This Extra-Brut Champagne owes its name to its original Pinot Meunier plot. Vinified in single parcel oak barrels, this cuvée was aged for 7 years in the cellar. To taste, it turns out to be the perfect expression of its grape variety as proven by its intensely golden-yellow colour, and its aromatic bouquet marked by gentle spices (vanilla, white pepper), dried apricot and butter. The palate, ample and persistent, is just as complex through its flavours of truffle, smoke, quince, caramel and vanilla. This Champagne is therefore undoubtedly a gastronomic wine.

Lieu-dit La Croisette Extra-Brut Xavier Leconte serve at a temperature of 9°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Carpaccio de bœuf, Gâteau d'omelette aux girolles, Camembert pâné et frit.
