The tumultuous effervescence maintains an attractive string of bubbles. The robe is light yellow with golden reflections. The nose is of great finesse. It reveals aromas of peach syrup, and very delicious aromas (salted butter caramels), to finally flourish towards floral (orange blossom) and bergamot. The mouth is rich and full. After a round and generous introduction, this vintage wine 2008 keeps an incredible freshness. The balance of the flavours and the elegance of the aromas confer to this vintage a very beautiful harmony.

It is a blend of the best parcels of chardonnay, which comprises 75% and the remainder pinot noir, which adds some depth and volume in the mouth. The ageing is 8 years on lees in the bottle and it has been finished with a dosage of 9 g/L of sugar, added at disgorgement.
Settled in Pierry since 1805, the Champagne house Vollereaux produced its first bottles in 1923. Now Franck Vollereaux, sixth generation of wine growers, selects with care the best grapes of its 42 hectares vineyard, completed by a supply selected in faithful wine growers’ vineyard, to compose each year around 400,000 bottles of a range of highly expressive champagnes.
Franck was inspired to create a limited release of this cuvée, by submerging under the sea near Ouessant Island, at a depth of 60 metres and ageing it for a year. This is a unique approach and very few producers go to this length to age their champagne. The bottle bears the characteristic sign of the ocean.
