About the Wine Maker
The story behind this Champagne is just as beautiful as the wine itself. Instead of the exuberance with which many types of Champagne are being sold, this wine is produced by a modest family from Avize that has been making fine Champagnes for generations. The owners are almost 90 and are still doing most of the labour themselves.
This is champagne of excellent level without the marketing premium. The grapes are grown in Grand Cru vineyards in Avize, Cramant and Oger. It is a Blanc de Blancs which means it is 100% Chardonnay. The wine is raised in large vats from the Elzas (12-24 months) and after bottling aged on its yeast in the cellars for another 6 years. This is a very elegant and complex champagne.
