By varying the blends of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the Champagnes of the Philipponat House offer great wines that can be found on the most prestigious tables. I particularly recommend his Sublime Reserve cuvée, a marvel full of roundness and honey aromas. I can't do without it anymore!
Quoted several times in very famous guides, Charline Drappier holds the reins of the estate with an iron hand to ensure the reputation of the Drappier House, which will also bring him many times to the Elysée. This success is mainly due to the application of winegrowers, from generation to generation, to cultivate and produce unique parcels. They devote themselves to respecting rarer varieties such as Petit Meslier, Blanc Vrai and even rarer, Arbane. Drappier champagnes are made with minimal doses of sulphur. They are colourful, generous in their aromas and of great vinosity.
I couldn't miss Sousa's house in this selection. After 3 generations, Erick and his family took over the queens of the vineyard in the heart of the Champagne region: the Avize terroir. Their vintages are now known throughout the world and have conquered the greatest names in gastronomy such as Pierre Hermé!
Recently tasted and appreciated by Jon Arvid Rosengren, considered as the best sommelier in the world, Champagne Lejeune is a rare and exceptional jewel! A pearl that accompanies great emotions on great occasions!
The Domaine began growing biodynamically in 1989. He is therefore one of the pioneers and one of the most fervent defenders of biodynamics in the region. Its best argument for promoting this method of cultivation is the quality of its vintages. The RVF was not mistaken: "Superb value for money for the white black crude oil, exemplary in a register of fine bubbles and with a texture as fresh as it is ripe.
Our estate is spread over 14 hectares, most of which are classified as Grand Cru and Premier Cru, mainly Mesnil sur Oger, Oger, Vertus, and Cuis. Our fiefdom, Le Mesnil sur Oger, located in the south-east of Epernay, owes the richness of its terroir to a mosaic of tiny plots where the Chardonnay perfectly expresses its entire personality.
