Description

The Cuvée des Grands Vintages by Eric Rodez is a unique champagne, the result of blending the very best vintages.

Fruity, complex and mature, this peerless champagne of a rare depth and complexity has been created from 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from the Grand Cru terroir of Ambonnay in a blend of 6 different vintages: 7% 1998, 6% 1999, 19% 2000, 16% 2002, 17% 2004 and 35% 2005.

The personal touch of Eric Rodez is also visible in the winemaking, with all of the wines being made in small oak casks and 95% undergoing no malolactic fermentation resulting in an incredible freshness and ageing potential.

The dosage is very low, around 3g/litre.

The Cuvée des Grands Vintages by Eric Rodez has a golden sheen with coppery gleams.

The nose offers beautifully developed aromas of quince and orange marmalade with hints of pastries.

This is a full-bodied and powerful champagne with an aromatic and well-balanced palate and a superb finish.
