Deep golden hues introduce a nose of crystallized citrus interlaced with succulent scents of warm brioche, caramel, lush pears and ginger bread. Fullness and impressive length on the palate, with cushiony effervescence showcasing dense body.
“Mature and well balanced, Delice is carefully crafted from the same blend as Brut Reserve but with a natural creaminess that comes from longer aging after dosage Pairs effortlessly with sweet-tasting foods, adding just the right degree of freshness.”
Pinot Noir 75%
Manual picking, whole cluster pressing. Alcoholic fermentation at 15° and malolactic in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. Ageing on laths in traditional chalk cellars.

35 g of sugar per litre.
Bottle 75 cl.
Pairing with food
Smooth enough to flatter the texture of foie gras, whether served “au naturel” or lightly seared, also playing well with variations on a sweet-and-savoury theme - pigeon pastilla, duck with honey and a whole host of other exotic flavours. At the close of the meal, Délice will perform impeccably with such traditional delicacies as batter pudding, caramelized upside-down apple tart, sweet soufflés or the traditional wedding cake.
