She was Queen of Scotland and Queen of France, wife to Francis II and the rival of Queen Elizabeth I of England. The story of this monarch, her passionate and glamorous personality, her weaknesses and grandeurs, has always inspired artists, writers and poets of every age.
She was very fond of the Champagne region where she stayed with her aunt Renata of Lorraine, at the time Abbess of Saint-Pierre-les-Dames Abbey in Reims. There she won the hearts of the local population. A street in Reims was renamed in her honour (one of its buildings is currently home to the Union of Champagne Houses).
This delicious aperitif champagne is characterised by elegance, balance and aromatic depth.
A blend of the best grapes from the Marne Valley and the Sézannais, this wine boasts a brilliant pale gold colour. The bouquet is delightfully seductive. The palate, full and fruity, reveals delicate notes of sweet white fruits. The finish has a slight mineral edge.
