- Excellent quality grower using biodynamic practices

- Based along the Marne Valley in famous Mareuil-sur-Aÿ near Billecart-Salmon

- Pair with Korean fried chicken and don't feel guilty about it

Acidity is lower than expected which is fine as this wine is going for a richer more decadent style. Think Philipponnat Royale Reserve or Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve and you are in the same sort of territory. Very enjoyable and beautifully made.

The Pouillon family has been growing grapes in the region for over a century, but it wasn’t until 1947 when Fabrice’s grandfather, Roger Pouillon, decided to produce wine from his holdings along with the help of his wife, Bernadette, and his uncle, Louis Baulant, a well-known winemaker and consultant in the region.

The estate continued to grow over succeeding decades as grape contracts expired allowing the family terroirs to be incorporated into the Pouillon estate. James Pouillon, Fabrice’s father, joined the firm in 1964 and modernized the cellar by adding enamel-lined tanks and gyropalletes.

Fabrice joined his father in 1998 after finishing degrees in both business and oenology school, and he has taken the winery in an exciting new direction. Working in the grand cru of Aÿ and throughout the Vallée de la Marne and the Montagne de Reims, Fabrice is crafting articulate, expressive, terroir-driven wines that are vibrantly aromatic and intricate on the palate.

Fabrice Pouillon is dedicated to the vitality, energy and health of his vineyards. In 2003, he began the work of conversion to organic viticulture and today he incorporates biodynamic principles into his work including compost management, spraying herbal “teas” and applying 500 and 501 treatments. He currently uses only organic compounds for fertilizer, pheromone confusion to ward off pests, cover crops to restore nutrients in the soil and plows alternating rows to keep vine competition and soil aeration consistent despite varied growing conditions.

60% from the 2015 Vintage and 40% reserve wine, hence the name. All reserve wines are aged in large foudres, in a perpetual solera form.

Being a richer, warmer style of champagne it can quite comfortably handle a wide selection of canapes. Our preferred choice though would see it with some Korean Fried Chicken, smokey chipotle sauce and some fries for good measure. If you prefer healthier eating, try having the chicken grilled a la portuguese style, with some fragrant rice. A Crab or Lobster roll wouldn't be bad either. 👌🏼
