Champagne Henri Abelé Sourire de Reims Brut
For the Sourire de Reims Brut, Maison Abelé selects the finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims terroirs, and only in the very best vintages. The Sourire is then left to reach aromatic maturity and reveal its magnificent array of flavours during an extended stay in our historic cellars. After several years of maturing, this exceptional champagne is disgorged and left to rest again for between 6 and 12 months.
