This Champagne is vinified from Pinot Meunier from a single harvest from a single plot, ‘Sous Les Trous’ in Bonneil. This south-facing plot, where the vines grow on clay-limestone soil, was planted by his grandfather in 1973.
For the vinification, only the vintage is preserved and it is only vinified in stainless steel vats. Depending on the year, the malolactic fermentation is done or not.
About the Wine Maker
Winemaker on one hectare, in the West Marne Valley in Azy sur Marne, Alexandre vinifies only this micro cuvee of 1697 bottles which are individually numbered by engraving.
Alexandre vinified his first champagne in 2014 at 25 years old, and has released only the 2016 vintage since. He works organically and he grows the vines only by himself, like his little garden. Respecting the biodiversity present. The critics on this first vintage are very positive, so we are happy to be his importer for the Netherlands. Certainly a winemaker to watch.
