Comment

The Népenthès cuvée by Marchal Degesne is an elegant and structured champagne.


A plant that soothes pain in Greek mythology, Népenthès is also an ideal cuvée to cheer up gloomy evenings. This champagne is made from grapes selected from the oldest vines on the estate. They give it the necessary consistency and intensity characteristic of this cuvée.

The blending of three vintages gives the Népenthès cuvée its soundness and balance, while ageing for 7 years gives the champagne its notes of gingerbread, brioche and toast.
