The champagne Impressions by Eliane Delalot is a Blanc de Meunier made from 100% meaner grapes from a single parcel (lieu-dit Les Boulards) of old vineyards (vieilles vignes) in Charly-sur-Marne in Vallée de la Marne. Of this numbered edition, only 1600 bottles have been produced. The pressing is done in the traditional way in wood casks and fermentation is spontaneous. This is a Brut Nature, which means that no sugars have been added in the dosage.
Impressions is distinguished by its verticality: the nose perceives strong fruity and slightly spicy notes. The mouth is delighted by its freshness, with a really interesting smokey finish. It is a champagne that can be enjoyed throughout the meal.
About the Wine Maker
According to winemaker Jerome Lefèvre, luxury is time, and at the domaine they are convinced a rich and hearthy soil is the only condition to elaborate an exceptional wine. Thus, he grows his small vineyard (only 1,07 hectare) the organic way through a global and slow approach: following Jerome Lefèvre’s principles, they work almost entirely by hand, reducing the use of mechanics and petrol to the minimum. They plough the soil by horse and they only use organic and essential oils. Each vine requires a specific attention.
