The red grapes make their mark a bit more in the Classic Cuvée NV* (2015 base. 53% Chardonnay, 31% Pinot Noir and 16% Pinot Meunier), with a delicious savoury-toned nose of hedgerow berries, brown bread and ripe yellow fruits. Some floral sweetness, too. It’d be hard to say this wasn’t as engaging as the Première Cuvée on the nose; it’s friendlier but delicious, with real poise on the palate (if not the intensity or length of the Première). They certainly complement each other.
