The Henri Abelé Brut Traditionnel is a true, highly-spirited champagne, made from a selection of the best crus classes from the Marne Valley: Villers-Marmery, Vaudemange, Bisseuil, Bouzy, Villedommage, Chamery, Nogent and l’Abbesse. The assemblage achieves harmony with Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, a proportion which is subject to slight variations as dictated by the conditions and qualities of the vintage. After disgorging, a subtle dosage brings out its characteristic floral aromas. The wine is aged for over four years in the bottle, sheltered from light and changes in temperature. Over that time, it refines and comes into its own to bring out the best in the fine fruit. Lovely greenish golden colour, with floral aromas and pleasing crispness, characteristics which make it particularly appropriate as an aperitif with hors d’oeuvres, though connoisseurs are quite insistent about finding many other occasions during the day.
