A blend of 22% Pinot Meunier, 65% Pinot Noir and 13% Chardonnay distinguished by its lovely freshness, minerality and purity. Fruity aromas, with aniseed, apple tart, saffron and sultanas notes. A gastronomic wine marked by richness and strong flavours. Lots of brioche and the complexity of an aged champagne.  Smooth, dense and creamy, fresh and mineral, with elegant complexity and good persistence. The extra lees ageing gives a pronounced finesse and an expansive energetic finish.


Story: Franck Pascal was one of the first biodynamic growers in Champagne and remains one of its most passionate and gifted winemakers. He meticulously cares for 7 hectares in the Vallée de La Marne with what he calls, “a deep sensitivity for nature and the energy forces in our vines.” The name refers to quint– a musical term related to tempo, and essence– the aromas coming from nature. 

Vinification: 45 year-old vines growing on chalk, clay and limestone soils. Grapes are hand-harvested, gently pressed and placed in an enamelled vat for the first alcoholic fermentation. Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir are fermented separately then blended together after fermentation. Indigenous yeasts only, and kept on its lees for over 10 years. Unfined, unfiltered with zero dosage.
