La Grande Sendrée takes its name from a parcel covered with ashes after the fire which ravaged Urville in 1836. A spelling mistake having slipped into the copying of the cadastre, it is written Sendrée today with a "s "and not a" c ".
On light, "crayot" soils, the Chardonnay reveals great elegance while the slightly predominant Pinot Noir brings its power and great vinosity.
The 2008 vintage is considered a Great Year in Champagne. The harvest began on September 15 in the best conditions. The healthy, well-formed grapes had good acidity and a high sugar content.
Tasting: Lovely pale yellow dress with topaz nuances. Nice patina over time, nice complexity. Notes of hawthorn, acacia honey, beeswax and almond paste. Aeration distinguishes notes of quince paste, raspberry jelly, bergamot and warm pastries. Tonic appetizer. A caressing bubble that balances wild strawberry jam and ripe blood orange. This harmony extends over a delicate minerality and pretty bitters where tangerine notes are revealed.
Perfect for an aperitif with a crayfish stroke with grapefruit, a poached turbot in hollandaise sauce, a scallop carpaccio, a rack of lamb with foie gras, a Bresse poultry truffled with cream, a Comté d 18 months pasture.
