Since 2009, Aurélien Suenen has been applying his philosophy and experience in winemaking to his wines and land. By reintroducing mechanical work, Aurélien and his team wish to ensure the preservation of the land so it can continue to be passed on from generation to generation.
In honour of his grandfather and to ensure the perpetration of his legacy, Aurélien ages all of his wines in oak barrels or enamelled stainless steel casks. This first process enables a faint beginning of oxidation in the wine and unveils yeasty notes.
The chalky soil on which Aurélien's vines grow, typical from the Cramant region, is what gives Suenen Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Extra Brut its mouth-full minerality and finesse.
Over 60% of grapes that make up this cuvée come from vines facing north that barely get any sunlight. This gives a refreshing and tense wine with hints of lemon zest and quite a lot of texture.
