Wine Maker Notes
Really well made in the classic Champagne Method. Aged horizontally at least for 9 months. The difference between a Francois Montand Brut and an Extra-Brut is the dose of additional sugar that is added. The Francois Montand Extra-Brut has more added sugar during the ’degorgement’ and this provides sweetness.
A complex blend of various white grapes, mainly Colombard, Ugny blanc & Chardonnay.
Serve with cold starters with vegetables, terrine or goat’s cheese. With cooked or raw seafood, hot or cold shellfish. It is also a good accompaniment for white meat, oriental and spicy food (curry, Thai, Indian…) and dessert made with nuts, hazelnuts and walnuts.Serving temperature: 43 to 46°F.Cellar life: 1 to 2 years.
