Espirit Couture
Premier Cru 

The hand-made prestige cuvée of Maison Collet is a sparkling interpretation of Haute Couture. A rare assemblage of 11 Premier and Grand Crus selected in 2012. 60% Chardonnay from Grands Crus villages like Avize, Chouilly and Cramant contributes to the freshness, the tonicity and the elegance of the Esprit Couture. Vinification and ageing of the Chardonnay in champenois oak barrels allowed their aromas of brioche to develop fully. 40% Pinot Noir brings structure, softness and tenderness to the wine through iconic Grands Crus such as Aÿ, Mailly- Champagne or Verzy.

Appearance

Luminous, fairly fl uid,deep yellow-green color with deep lemon yellow highlights.

Nose

The first nose elegantly and distinctly recalls notes of butter, grilled hazelnut, cardamom, lime, verbena. When aerated Champagne reveals notes of apricot, blackcurrant, plum, biscuit, with accents of nougat, pineapple and toasted bread.

Palate

The contact on the palate is supple, fresh, fruity, sustained by an acidity reminding lemon. The middle mouth is orchestrated by chalky minerality that provides frankness, saltiness. Fruit and mineral matters are finely stitched and are carried by suppleness with aroma of citrus, exotic fruit. The finish is melted and sticks the palate with silky and light cloth.

Brut Rosé

This assemblage has its origin in 20 Crus from the Premiers and Grands Crus of the Champagne region. It is completed with 20% reserve wines. 50% Pinot Noir from the Grands Crus and Premiers Crus villages of Aÿ, Hautvillers, Avenay-Vald’Or or Louvois, to produce a light, tender and fruity wine. 40% Chardonnay predominantly from the Premier Cru of Vertus contributes freshness and lemony notes. The mineral dimension and aromas of fl int come from the Cru of Villers- Marmery, which has a limestone soil. Grands Crus and Premiers Crus villages such as Chouilly, Avize, Oger and Vaudemange, complete the assemblage with force and complexity. 10% Meunier provides roundness and suppleness. This assemblage Brut Rosé has 16% Pinot Noir, from Mailly-Champagne, well known for its aromatic power and its richness, and from Vertus, vinified as red wine. This red nectar allows fruity, warm and luscious aromas to develop.

First floral fragrances which give way to fragrances of orange, mandarin, yellow peach, and red fruits – mulberries and raspberries. A beautiful freshness, a delicate nose with notes of brown sugar

Palate

Enjoyment and elegance describe this cuvée Brut Rosé. A richness of fruits – mulberry and blackcurrant, peach – a note of cocoa, making a round, supple, velvety wine. A beautiful, silky texture, sustained by a tender effervescence

An undisputed partner of cocktails and aperitifs, the cuvée Champagne Collet Brut is an emblematic wine reflecting the broad range of Crus of the Champagne region.

Appearance

An anise yellow gold with a fine string of bubbles.

Notes of white flowers, citrus. Stone fruit, such as quince, apple, crisp pear as well as white peach. Small delicate touches of spices, cumin, anise and herbs, black tea and lime tea. Light pastry notes, like the puff pastry of an apple tart.

Palate

An impression of freshness as delicate as the bubbles are fine. A wine with a balanced texture. Stone fruit (quince, pear, apple and almost-candied lemon zest). A straightforward and refined wine, with a wonderful persistence in the mouth, crunchy like a thin caramel biscuit.

The Villers-Marmery Premier Cru completes the blend and adds a mineral dimension along with a touch of smoke. 10% Meunier rounds off the blend with richness and smoothness.

Appearance

Bright, luminous hue flecked with lemon-yellow tints and displaying fine, lively bubbles

Nose

Mineral and iodized on the first nose, mixed with notes of lemon, quince and brioche, alongside scents of linden, acacia and fresh verbena. After aeration, the champagne reveals aromas of limestone, liquorice, blackcurrant and pomelo

Palate

Clean and fresh on entry, followed by pulpy fruit underpinned by the zingy acidity of lemon and pomelo. The wine is mineral, clean and saline on the mid-palate. The freshness, typical of the vintage and the iodized seaspray, create a tasty finish, full of the pure, delicate flavours of grape pulp, set against a citrus backdrop
