  • This exquisite Champagne opens with a refreshing burst of acidity that gradually reveals abundant floral aromas, alongside the delectable flavors of ripe pear, peach, and citrus. The delightful taste is further complemented by a hint of orange peel and a complexity of dried fruit notes. It is a perfectly balanced Champagne, exuding elegance and finesse and culminating in a remarkably enduring finish.

The grapes were pressed using a pneumatic press, followed by a long "débourbage" or settling period. A small amount of sulphur was added before fermentation. Alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks using their "pied de cuvee", which is a technique used in natural winemaking to employ natural yeasts. A small batch of must is used to start a spontaneous fermentation using indigenous yeasts; once this has been deemed successful, this “pied de cuvee” is added to the remaining must to start the fermentation process. This cuvée underwent natural

malolactic conversion following fermentation and was bottled the following April. The wine spent five years ageing on its lees in the bottle.

An elegant Champagne featuring an initial crisp acidity that gives way to generous floral, ripe pear, peach, and citrus notes, complemented by a subtle twist of orange peel and dried fruit complexity. This beautifully balanced Champagne is full of finesse and has a long, lingering finish.

Made from 100% Chardonnay. The vineyard is spread over 42 parcels in and around the Premier Cru village of Vrigny and is farmed according to organic and biodynamic methods. The vineyard comprises eight hectares, and the vines grow over gently rolling hills at altitudes of 150 metres above sea level. The grapes for this cuvee come from a blend of five parcels from Vrigny Premier Cru, where the soils are sandy loam and calcareous marls. The Chardonnay vines are pruned according to the Chablis method. The vineyard is ploughed by horse during the year to prevent soil compaction, allowing the top layers of soil access to oxygen and boosting the soil's overall health, vines and grapes. Grasses and plants are used between the vine rows to impart valuable nutrients to the soil. Harvested by hand.
