About Cuvée Les Cinq Filles
One out of only 17 villages awarded the highest recognition, Grand Cru, is the sole source of fruit for this remarkable Champagne.
Grand Cru Verzenay is situated in the northern part the prestigious Montagne de Reims, one of the hilliest parts in Champagne with a high content of the superior Belemnit chalk in the soil. Even before the classification of the 320 villages in Champagne, Verzenay was together with Ay ranked as the very best in the whole region. Given the location on Montagne de Reims, Verzenay is essentially a village for the black grapes with Pinot Noir accounting for 85,7% of the plantings. The Chardonnay coming from a total of only 57,3 ha devoted to this variety is both rare and distinguished. The expression is totally different from the Chardonnay coming from Cote de Blancs but with Pinot Noir being the highlight of the village very few let it stand alone.

Tasting notes
Brut Zero category the wine is dry and zesty but the massive fruit concentration and deep complexity completely satiates the palate with notes of crisp yellow summer apples, lemon custard, Polynesian vanilla and freshly baked pastry. In the aftertaste notes of praline, heavy cream and a hint of grapefruit appear and make the sensation linger for minutes.
This Blanc de Blancs is a full bodied style with the typical small persistent bubbles of Chardonnay. The long maturation in the bottle has made them perfectly integrated and the wine displays a high degree of overall balance and tension.
