Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Meunier compose this traditional blend, which uses grapes grown in 40 carefully selected villages in the famous regions of Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims. The result is a Champagne with a delicate, rich flavor that is both fresh and elegant. It is distinguished by its lingering long finish reminiscent of a melody.

YOSHIKI and POMMERY have composed a new harmony between music and Champagne, now available for everyone to enjoy.
