Vines are pruned during the first fortnight of March using the “Guyot” method. Vineyards are then ploughed and fertilised during the winter months.The grapes are hand harvested. The Champagne is Aged for a minimum of three years Food Recommendation:- Chilled, not iced as an aperitif or to accompany seafood and fish dishes.
