Jean-Marc Quarin. Note: 17 // 94 - 100% Chardonnay. Favourite and outsider. Pale green colour. Very beautiful fine nose, intense, with ripe fruit, with a touch of granny smith. Mouth with a magical touch, which melts on the palate and stretches out tasty, very fruity, over a large refined length. It's very good. Dosage: 3 gr.

The straightness and minerality of this champagne "Les Jardins du Mesnil Extra Brut" will express itself perfectly with the iodized side of seafood or fish. To enhance the style of the house and the aromas of the wine, we recommend that you taste this champagne at a temperature of 10 to 12°C. Also choose a large white wine glass to allow the aromas to release.
