Cuvée des Hussards 2012

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. We craft it from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, from vieilles vignes of more than 40 years old, specifically chosen for the chalky soil that gives an elegant minerality. 2012 is regarded as a vintage of reference.
