Après avoir testé le brut nature de ce vigneron, on a voulu goûter ce millésime. Là encore, pleinement satisfaits ! Et ce qui nous a été vraiment étonné, c'est la longueur en bouche remarquable. C'était sur un apéritif, nous étions avec des amis très amateurs de Champagne qui ont été conquis. Ce sera difficile de le garder en cave pour voir comment il va évoluer !!!
Une belle découverte ! Comme indiqué par le vigneron, c'est pour les amateurs de champagne brut non dosé : pleine expression champenoise du Chardonnay, vivacité (sans jamais être dur) finesse et une explosion d'arômes. Le rapport qualité prix pour blanc de blancs Grand Cru est intéressant comparé aux grandes marques qui n'ont parfois pas toutes ces qualités ! Cerise sur le gateau : très bon contact

Anecdotes about the domain

I've always been fascinated by the profession of winemaker. As a child, I didn't play at being a doctor but at being a winemaker! I have never lied to myself and I have always tried to go where my desires told me to go. I like to experiment with new and old techniques. On several occasions, I have applied an apple pectin-based elicitor in certain plots to fight against spring frosts. I have also tried to treat some plots affected by powdery mildew with garlic and milk. My goal is to work as healthily as possible and to perfect my work in order to try to produce excellent grapes and wines of Champagne.

The domain's short story

In 2015, we are switching our entire farm to integrated farming without herbicides or insecticides and our Bouzy plot to chemical-free farming. We continue to favour manual work by giving specific attention to each of our plots as if they were our children with their own character and differences. Each new viticultural season allows us to experiment with new practices, to question ourselves, to adjust the experiences of previous years. Even after 20 years in the business, we continue to learn because the vine and nature never behave in the same way. Today, we cultivate 1/3 of our vineyard without chemicals, following the precepts of organic and biodynamic agriculture. I don't claim any label but I believe in a responsible, ecological and respectful viticulture of our environment. Part of our wines are vinified in stainless steel tanks and the other part in barrels. In both cases, our wines are low in dosage and low in sulfur. For the last 8 years, we have been experimenting with parcel-based vinification by blending our parcels in the vineyard, shortly before the harvest, according to the maturity of the grapes and the particularities of each parcel linked to the subsoil and the exposure. For these cuvées, we have abandoned chaptalization, enzyming, racking, filtration and chilling with the objective of elaborating expressive and complex champagnes while respecting and adapting to the potential of the wine. We believe that the quality of a champagne is played out in the vineyard. Our philosophy is to harvest very ripe, healthy and sanitary grapes. "We pick only the grapes that we would like to eat. Our role then is simply to accompany the must to allow it to express all its potential. Of course, we do not intend to stop there and hope to be able to perpetuate our exploitation in the next years and to continue our way towards a cleaner, healthier, more natural viticulture, for us, for you and for the future generations.

The winemaker's pride

Our story begins in 1914 when Constant, my maternal great-grandfather, arrives from the Mayenne region on the Eastern front, near Reims. After the war, he settled in Bouzy and bought a small piece of land on which he planted Chardonnay vines. During the Second World War, my maternal grandmother, Emilienne, arrived with her meager suitcase from Boulogne sur Mer because of the exodus. She found work in Bouzy and married André, Constant's son. In 1957, the family with its four children (including Marie-Claude) moved to Cramant because André found work there. Little by little, the couple bought small parcels of vineyards in Cramant. A few years later, my mother, Marie-Claude, met Patrice, my father, a native of Cramant. They both worked in a champagne house and got married in 1972 in Cramant. My parents devoted their lives to building up our estate by buying small parcels in the Côte des Blancs in the terroirs of Cramant, Avize, Chouilly, Oger and Cuis. At the end of the 90's, I gradually took over from my parents with the firm intention of making my own way.
