Overview of the Wine
Three generations of women preside over this Champagne house, in the village of Chigny-Les-Roses, comprised of 11 hectares of Premier Cru vineyards. The Cachet d'Or is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier in equal parts, aged for 36 months on the lees before disgorgement. The wine has a giving, fruit-forward style and is an easy drinking and ultra-affordable alternative to the more ubiquitous brands that shall go unnamed.
60% Meunier, 20% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay

92 Points - Wine Spectator
There's an open-knit, almost airy feel to this vibrant Champagne, which carries a concentrated range of juicy pear and black raspberry fruit, with hints of crystallized honey. Shows gingersnap biscuit and verbena flavors on the chalky texture, gaining momentum on the racy, zesty finish.
90 Points - Vinous
Light gold. Ripe pear, honey and tangerine on the fragrant nose and in the mouth. Fleshy, broad and rather powerful, with a touch of bitter quinine adding a dry edge. Closes smooth and subtly spicy, with good cling and a lingering note of sweet butter.
