Description of Marie Léopold
Cuvée Marie Léopold from Michel Loriot’s APOLLONIS range of champagnes is a dry cuvée, a tribute to the oenologist Marie, the daughter of Michel and Léopold, great-grandfather of the winegrower. This champagne embodies the link between generations of the family.
This summery and feminine champagne is the result of a HEV certified (High Environmental Value) blend of vines, which is composed of 70% Meunier and 30% Chardonnay. The important sugar dosage (20gr/l) lead to a surprisingly soft, creamy and delicately sweet cuvée. Alike every champagne of the range, it has been raised to the sound of delicious melodies, at each step of its production, from the vineyard to the cellar.
It unveils a very fine and elegant perlage and it offers an expressive nose of spring floral bouquet, slightly grilled, which evokes fresh orange juice. The palate is fresh and recalls small yellow grapes, a slight sweetness, just a perfect harmony between fruity and freshness. It's a very rare cuvée : just 1000 bottles !
Marie Léopold Sec is a balanced champagne which brilliantly pairs with foie gras, desserts and chocolate !
