Titled "Dans Un Premier Temps" this Champagne marks an excellent introduction to Dhondt-Grellet's extraordinary selection

An assembled cuvée composed of 50% Chardonnay from Sézanne (Côte de Sézanne), 30% Pinot noir from Avenay-Val-d'Or (Vallée de la Marne) and 20% Meunier from old Cuis vines ( Côte des Blancs), Dans Un Premier Temps represents a cross-section of the three main villages that the small producer company works with. Enhanced with 30% reserve wine from a perpetual reserve dating back to 1986, the year the winery was founded, the cuvée ultimately tells a story of terroir and the fundamental spirit of the Domaine, offering a clear statement of its ethos in every delicious sip.

Taste
With a beautiful lemon yellow color and pear aromas, the cuvée displays an expressive bouquet of orange oil melted with toasted almonds. It's equally charming on the palate, with notes of white peach, yuzu and red cherry leading to a rounded mid-palate of ripe orchard fruit and dried apple. A fine chalky minerality drives the conclusion, intensifying and extending in great length to bring a refreshing, dry appeal.

Glass pairing
Best enjoyed from the Lehmann G. Basset, Hommage 45 Ultralight machine glass.

Food pairing
Delicious paired with Comté cheese, aburi salmon nigiri (flame-cooked salmon sushi) or freshly cooked scampi served with homemade mayonnaise and lemon wedges.
