1 etoile guide Hachette des vins 2022.png

A Champagne of character with noble expression. To taste between enthusiasts.

This cuvée owes its name to the place called “Les Treilles”. In the past, vines were cultivated in the gardens, along a wall, on an arbor or a trellis (treillage).

The Pearl is a nod to the Chardonnay grape from which it is made.

TERROIR :

Ay Grand Cru
Pierry 1er Cru
Damery

GRAPE VARIETY:

  • 60 % Pinot Noir

  • 40 % Chardonnay

  • 50% reserve wines (25% 2015 reserve wines, 25% 2014 reserve wines)

TASTING :

To the eye: Bright, yellow gold color with very fine bubbles. The sensational appearance announces a rich and fresh champagne which invites tasting.

 

 

On the nose: Concentration and finesse. Cream, brioche and white pepper express themselves first. More mineral and iodine notes are then paired with fruity aromas of pear and muscat grapes.

 

 

On the palate: The attack is fresh with the sensation of biting into fresh, ripe grapes but supple thanks to its creamy effervescence. The finish is explosive with an exhilarating acidity and aromas of lemon, green apple and pear. As it warms up, it evolves into woody, vanilla and toffee notes, both rich and complex.

GOURMET PAIRING :

Pike-perch fillet with pink peppercorns, Veal sweetbreads with morels, Pear gratin with goat’s cheese and rosemary.

AWARDS :

  • Gold medal, International Prague Wine Trophy 2020

  • Silver medal, International Wine Challenge 2020

  • Selected by Guide Gault & Millau 2020

Decanter tasting notes: Lifted nose and palate spice, vanillin, quince and mandarin.

A rather powerful style perhaps best enjoyed with food.
