Welcome to our world of champagne
Early spring is here. Birds sing, and now we benefit from the incredible increase of lux that seems to wrap everthing in a layer of golden light. Inside and outside. A bit like champagne itself :-)
We are about to finish the pruning which is the biggest manual task of the year. Doing this thoroughly and well is the basics of the quality we eventually want to share with you as you enjoy our champagne, and this is why we prefer to do most of this demanding task ourselves. The next job is to attach the vines to the wires.
Inside the walls we deal with the vins clairs of the grapeharvest in 2014. The Blanc de Blancs and the assemblage for our Tradition will be on its way. Up for tasting these next weeks are the rosés and the plot wines that we are particularly curious about.
The single plot champagne of 2014 is our second and made of Chardonnays from Loisy-en-Brie. At this moment it is a very promising still wine, complex and with a good acidity. However, it will have to spend quite some time in the caves for the prise de mousse this spring followed by several years of aging.
At the moment we suggest non vintage champagnes of a certain age (Tradition and Noirs & Blancs) and vintage Blanc de Blancs champagnes from 2006 and 2007/2008. We suggest two kinds of rosé champagnes - Rosé de Saignée and Rosé d'Assemblage as well as a sweeter Demisec champagne.
