CHAMPAGNE SERVEAUX FILS – Raisins Noirs
Around 28 euros per bottle
Original and harmonious bottle.
Pale gold, crystal-clear.
Refined and persistent bead of bubbles.
Generous and gourmet.
Radiant waltz of aromas of nice ripe red and black fruits, deliciously luxuriant, highlighted by subtle spices and by a spark of citrus fruits, captivating signatures of the majority of Meunier (80%) assisted by the Pinot Noir (20%).
Later, the nose reveals its sensuality with joyful touches of honey and then pastries and roasted coffee, expressions of the beautiful maturity of the cuvée obtained by 3 years of ageing on laths of the bottles, before riddling and disgorgement.
Life-giving opening, thanks to the timely stop of the malolactic fermentation of the base wines and to the adjusted dosage with only 5 g/L of sugar added at disgorgement.
Later, the mouth becomes voluptuous, dense and deep, sensual characteristic sign of the old plots of vines (45 years old in average) in which grapes were harvested by hand in 2012 (20%) and 2013 (80%).
Finally, we find again the red and black fruits already perceived at the nose.
Remarkable length on the palate.
For this cuvée Raisins Noirs, Pascal Serveaux and his son Nicolas sign a touching interpretation of the black varietals of Champagne in the beautiful clay-limestone terroirs of Passy-sur-Marne and Barzy-sur-Marne, in the Marne Valley.
To taste as an aperitif or during a meal, with a breton turbot, mashed carrots and ginger, for example.
Passionate wine growers, Martine and Pascal Serveaux, now joined by their children Elodie, Nicolas and Hugo, cultivate with care their vineyard of 15 hectares planted with the three champenois varietals (60% of Meunier, 20% of Pinot Noir and 20% of Chardonnay). An in-depth knowledge of their terroir, an original predilection for the Meunier and a controlled œnology enable them to produce with accuracy each year, in their new fermenting room of Passy-sur-Marne, around 50,000 bottles of authentic champagnes.
