PRODUCTION : 5,000 bottles, same base wine as the Brut champagne

VITICULTURE : Terroir of Hautvillers, 1er Cru area. Clay and limestone soil. Integrated grape growing with tillage. Average age of vines: 30 years. The vines are pruned according to the “Taille Chablis” method (short size on long frames) and “Cordon de Royat” method (an old form of pruning, which allows a homogenous distribution of leaves and grape)..

HARVEST : The grapes are carefully selected for their maturity in each parcel of vines. Manual harvest with sorting of the grapes in the vineyard.

VINIFICATION :Direct pressing of the harvested grapes in a 2000 Kg traditional Coquart wooden press. Each grape variety is vinified separately. Alcoholic fermentation in vats and total malolactic fermentation with the use of selected yeasts. The wines are then kept on their lees for 3 months at least, with slight racking if necessary. Blind tasting of the different grapes varieties of that year’s harvest takes place in February and the blending of these different wines and older wines, the “Assemblage”, creates our final cuvee.

AGING / DEGORGEMENT: : Aging on wooden slats, laid on their side in our traditional cellars for 30 months minimum, cuvée disgorged 3 months before shipment with an added dosage of 32g / litre. Finally, use of new traditional corks. TASTING NOTES :Made on the same wines as the Brut Tradition, with a higher sugar dosage. A remarkably supple champagne with a beautiful roundness, with a very fruity mouth which makes it very pleasant on the palate. This champagne will be the final touch to of all your desserts or to accompany a toast with foie gras.
