Cuvée des Hussards 2008

Limited availability

Size: 75 cL

Named in homage to Napoleon’s light cavalry - who were the first to use sabrage, the opening of a bottle of champagne with a sabre in celebration - Cuvée des Hussards is powerful and expressive. The 2008 vintage is crafted from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from 55-year-old vieilles vignes and aged 8 years before a late disgorgement.

"A must-try cuvée for anyone who loves the most original wines."

EDWIN RABEN, four-time Best Sommelier in the Netherlands

Composition

100% Chardonnay

Tasting notes

A complex nose of candied apple, apricot and peach gives way to warm spices and aromas of roasting. The powerful palette is rich, supported by a delicate, creamy mousse.

Ideal with

Bresse Gauloise chicken with morel mushrooms
