An enchanting blanc-de-blancs from a small grower-Champagne producer.
+ GRAPE: 100% Chardonnay (blanc-de-blancs). Sustainable farming.
VIA THE PRODUCER
"The soil of our Côte des Blancs terroirs is made up of a thin layer of earth - sometimes covering 10 meters of chalk from belemnite fossils (small shells). As a result, the roots of our Chardonnay vines must draw very deep to reach the resources of water and mineral elements essential to their survival. This 'poverty' of soils produces wines with a magnificent mineral structure.
The 'Esprit de Craie' (spirit of the chalk) is made with two of the chalkiest plots on the estate. The modest 'Extra Brut' dosage (6 grams per liter of sugar) makes it an ideal wine for an aperitif, with beautiful notes of citrus, yellow apple and brioche, and always this beautiful minerality on the finish."
