Pale gold in color with a fine mousse, the wine is extremely aromatic on the nose. On the palate, it is quite dry and shows great style and complexity. Pinot Noir gives the wine its richness and a long finish while Chardonnay, from the finest soils of the Côte des Blancs, adds delicacy, liveliness and freshness. Pinot Meunier, mainly from the Marne Valley, gives the wine an appealing fruitiness.

Ideal as an aperitif, it pairs perfectly with seafood, caviar, scallops, lobster, crab, salmon; sushis and Asian food are also very good pairings. The Brut Nature compliments soft and mouldy cheeses such as Coulommiers, Brie and Brillat-Savarin. Pairings with desserts include crumbles with red berries or figs. Brut Nature can also be enjoyed after dinner with a cigar. And for ladies, it is also the perfect “diet champagne”!
