The Champagne La Grande Vie by Domaine La Rogerie is the second product of the family Petit Boxler, 100% Chardonnay from Grand Cru in Avize, 2013 harvest, with an addition of Vins de Reserve from 2004 to 2012.
"Lifted yellow fruit, rich leesy character with notes of freshly baked croissant. The palate has a lively, linear acidity yet with roundness and complexity as it passes through. Overall a clean, creamy and mineral-driven wine with tonnes of expression and terroir-focus." Kyri Christodoulou
The tirage took place in April 2014 and the wine rested on its yeasts for 48 months. This authentic Champagne Blanc de Blancs has a low sugar dosage (Extra Brut 6g/l).
The same Cuvée is presented in 6 different bottles, designed by the artist and friend Nicolas Maitrot, to celebrate life in 6 different ways.
Collection 3 - Edition "The Decadent Yard"
With all this incredible ageing and power, there is little need to cover it up with sugar, hence the low dosage of 5 g/l.This special boutique champagne house, created in 2016 by young married couple Justine and François Petit-Boxter, still produces only around 1000 bottles a year.
We are proud to introduce this boutique producer exclusive to Emperor - Domaine La Rogerie who are based in Avize. This husband and wife team François and Justine are leading the charge with their family's estate - Famille Petit Boxler founded in 2016. Both coming from a family of vignerons: François's grandparents bought their vineyards in Avize in the 1940s' and up to 2015 have been selling their wines, whereas Justine's family were established back in 1640 in the town of Niedermorshwihr in Alsace. They are passionate about soil and farming organically, with no pesticides, to recreate biodiversity and strengthen soil structure, as well as the encouraging the old vines to dig deeper. The vineyards were planted in the 1950's in the heart of the Côte des Blancs: Avize and Cramant, both classified as Grand Cru villages. Since 2000 they have started vinifying independently. Some Vins de Reserve have been added to create the first Cuvée: La Grand Vie.
