"This is the first release of Suenen's new non-vintage cuvée, made entirely from the village of Oiry. Oiry is one of the most obscure of Champagne’s grand crus, and up until now, I have never seen a bottle of champagne labeled as pure Oiry. This is racy and sleek, its tense structure and slim body reflecting the village’s shallow, chalky soils, and it demonstrates a subtle nuance on the palate, persisting with pure, incisive flavors and excellent length."

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.
