Doyard La Libertine 75cl

Doyard La Libertine

The cuvée La Libertine is the result of a ten-year research project to produce a wine with the same gustative characteristics as the first sparkling wines produced in the 18th century. At this time, a bottle of Champagne generally received a dosage of between 50 to 200 g/l of sugar. Doyard felt that a dosage of 65 g/l of sugar for the Libertine was enough – this is certainly a sweet cuvée. The challenge was always to have the right balance between acidity and sweetness, providing a freshness to the finish. This unique and utterly delicious Champagne is a blend of Chardonnay wines from four vintages, cellar aged for twelve years. The sweetness is beautifully schooled by a lime and gooseberry acidity, upon which tertiary fruit flavours including currants and other dried fruits, caramel, liquorice and other complex nuances make an appearance. Presented in an authentically shaped bottle in a satin lined box, the cork is restrained by a hemp cord and wax seal.
