“Creating a vintage cuvée is a bit like black-and-white photography. It reminds you of the weather conditions and the harvests produced in a very special year – it is a slice of history preserved in a bottle. The vintage earns its place in the House album and the blend is a snapshot of the year’s profile. The picture must be clear, precise and beautifully contrasted. It bears testimony to harvests that are always different from one year to the next.”
2007 was a symbolic year marking the 250th anniversary of the Champagne house and the beginning of a new era for Henri Abelé. It was the year of the first vinification in the new winery, and the arrival of the new cellar master Franck Nicaise. This Brut Vintage 2007 is the perfect Champagne for fans of complex wines. Subtle and elegant, it reveals the full potential of this excellent vintage.
Grape varieties60% Chardonnay
40% Pinot Noir
A beautiful straw yellow color. Remarkably fine bubbles and a beautiful persistent foam.
This wine opens up with peach and apricot notes joined by more spiced notes such as gingerbread, honey and licorice.
On the palate, the attack is frank, on the Chardonnay. The Pinot Noir brings of the complexity with spicy notes. The discreet dosage of this vintage gives it a very pleasant sensation of freshness. A subtle and elegant Champagne.
