Jeux de Froid


Evokes images of snowy winter landscapes cloaked in white, rediscovering a landscape of silent and dazzling whiteness. Fine and imperceptible snow, freezing cold air emanating aromas and fragrances from far off and close to. Jeux de Froid captures the essence of cold and snow in an intriguing way. Following an ancient method this wine is not filtered but left to rest in barrique in cellars left open in the heart of the winter when night time temperatures are below zero and the cold makes its way into the very particles of the wine which will soon be Champagne and the liquid part separates from its solids which precipitate by natural decantation.

    Appearance: Luminous golden yellow with greenish highlights. Elegant, compact, luminous white mousse. Fine, persistent and constant perlage.
    Bouquet: a bouquet of aromas which plays on the juxtaposition between the freshness of the floral and fruity notes with evident notes of white flowers, peach and citrus contrasting with the complex ripeness of the clove and vanilla nuances. After brief exposure to the air pleasant sensations of cinnamon with intriguing smoky notes open up.
