This company, with its 260 years of history, has been taken over by the Nicolas Feuillatte group. Taking advantage of its reputation, it relies on grape supplies with the Riceys vineyard as its speciality for red and rosé wines, the blends are made to measure and benefit from long ageing. The famous “Sourire de Reims” that can be admired on the Cathedral is the spearhead of the house, well led by Marie Gicquel, its winemaker.
- AOP Champagne, Abelé 1757 Blanc de Blancs NV
- AOP Champagne, Abelé 1757 Brut. Homogeneous ensemble of blond fruit, yellow citrus peel and a few cereal touches. The palate is comfortable, with a rich, sweet fruitiness balanced by a bitter finish.
- AOP Champagne, Le Sourire de Reims Brut Millésimé 2009. Concentrated nose, well extracted from the character of the vintage. The aromatics are deep and dense, expressing warm fruitiness of white to yellow fruit liqueur and bitter almond. A racy, precise rancio creates the notes of nobility. The palate is finely milky, salty, with lemon and fresh almond accents on a medium length. 92/100
