60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay.
From the village of Bouzy - long renowned for producing some of the finest Champagne.
Spontaneous fermentation from native wild yeasts, the wine is very carefully produced and no malolactic fermentation is permitted - a difficult to achieve and rare trait in Champagne.
The end result is a clean, aromatic champagne with flavors of ripe stone fruit and minerality.
This Champagne producer is “Récoltant-Manipulant”, a term meaning that they make their wine from only grapes grown on their own vineyards - this promotes the best expression of terroir.
All the production and aging is done onsite, which allows the winemaker to control the entire process, and offer the finest end result.
This is a surprisingly rare classification - only about 5% of Champagne imported into the US is “Grower Champagne”. The majority of Champagne houses use grapes from many vineyards throughout the region.
