88% Pinot Noir, 12% Chardonna
founded in 1956, our House brings together 130 families of winegrowers who practice sustainable viticulture on 315 hectares, south of Champagne, in the Arce Valley. A large part of our vineyard is undergoing organic conversion.
The Côte des Bar region is the southern-most wine-growing region of Champagne. The soil here is Kimmeridgian, very similar to the soils of Chablis, so it’s a mix of clay with the pure chalk limestone of the Marne. In fact the Bar is about half an hour closer to Chablis than it is to Epernay. The extra clay in the soil, brings a fuller body, a rounder mouth-feel and bigger fruit flavour than the Champagnes from the north. Indeed many Champagne producers in the north buy fruit from the Bar to flesh out their blends.
This is a lovely expression of (almost) Blanc de Noirs Champagne. Fresh and lively with complex notes of red fruit notes leading into citrus lemon and peach, and well woven notes of brioche, biscuit and bread. The palate is generous and full-bodied, round and supple but finishing with very respectable length for a wine at this price-point.
