Eclipse

Great sparkling wine that will ‘eclipse’ the best classics

Style

'Blanc de Noirs style', Chardonnay, Pinots Noir and Meunier. Absolutely unique in the world of Crémants AOC! This Cuvée fermented and aged in barrels is for Jean-Louis Denois a real fulfillment following the premonition of Michel Bettane in 1994 in the RVF. This Cuvée based on Pinot Noir has been awarded with a 'Coup de Cœur'. The sun of Versailles on the label represents the leading Champagne region all-powerful and absolutist for over two centuries. This Champagne may be challenged and eclipsed by a stubborn ram! Some hundreds bottles available, rare and confidential! Unique Crémant that well overcomes great Champagnes.
