Ora Alba Grand Cru Blanc de blancs




« Grand vin de la Côte des Blancs »

A Champagne Grand Cru coming from our father’s vineyards in Cramant, Oiry and Chouilly. Here we grow only Chardonnay on soils of pure chalk.

Fresh on the nose, with flavors of apples and lemon, as well as hints of peaches. Tasty and smooth, this wine has a real texture, due to its fine bubbles and mineral acidity, as typical for the wines from the Côte des Blancs. On the palate, it evolves towards brioche-like, buttery and toasty flavors, with a touch of thyme and grapefruit on the final.

This wine loves to accompany sushi or sashimi, a sole ceviche, a Carpaccio of sea bream or any other kind of raw fish.
