A symbol of a unique century-old expertise in Champagne, each cuvée is rigorously pressed by the family oak press “DarcqFlamain” via a process dating from 1888. The product of this long-term labor imparts sophistication and rarity to the Joseph Desruets champagnes: a natural and subtle oxygenation accentuating the aromas, offering round and powerful wines. The cuvée Nature requires grapes with perfect maturity resulting from a morning harvest to bring out the expression of the terroir of Hautvillers : The Cradle of Champagne.

The color is straw gold, clear and bright. In the glass, it emits a fine and regular effervescence, with a procession of fine bubbles.
The nose is rich with notes of ripe fruit followed by gourmet and brioche flavors, reminiscent of fine pastries.
The palate, fresh and lively, brings together sensations of apricots, peaches, and candied pears. The finish is long and delicate.
Best served at a temperature of 8°C, the Cuvée Nature combines perfectly with the treasures of the sea such as a carpaccio de Saint-Jacques, a grilled trout, or a poached seabass. It goes very well with refined and velvety products such as comté.
