A non-vintage cuvée from this small, family producer. Made from the three grapes of Champagne (1/3 Pinot Noir, 1/3 Pinot Meunier and 1/3 Chardonnay), this blend of varieties gives the wine balance, subtlety and freshness.
Larnaudie-Hirault own 6 hectares of vines and are situated in the tiny village of Trois-Puits in the Montagne-de-Reims, some 6 miles south of Reims itself. The Montagne-de-Reims is largely planted to the black varieties of Champagne - Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier- but there is some Chardonnay too.

A fresh mineral nose of chalk and very ripe Golden Delicious. There are notes of dry spice, smoke and hints of high-roast black coffee too. There is a creamy mousse on the palate that lends some structure, as does the piquant, almost peppery, minerality. Pear and apple fruit. A juicy, lemon grip drives through the palate coupled with that fine, chalk-dust minerality. A lovely wine, perfect as an aperitif or with food. Truly, a champagne perfect for all occasions!
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
