What to expect


If you like champagne that has the warm, toasty richness of age coupled with the energy and freshness of yellow grapefruit and citrus, then you have arrived at the right place.

Being an extra brut, it is dry and crisp yet soft and juicy mellowing out to mirabelle plum and lemon cream. This is not a simple wine by any means with the texture and mineral expression, making itself present.

This represents excellent value from this new producer in Australia. We are excited to see more from this house.

Technical details

60% Chardonnay 40% Pinot Noir of which 5% vin de réserve Dosage 3 g/l and aged on lees for 5 years. The winemakers Guy and Remy decided to age this wine using the traditional 'tirage' process, whereby each bottle is stoppered with a cork, held in place by a wire cage and sits in the cellar to age and develop. This allows for a little more development from the oxygen being absorbed via the cork's natural porous nature.

This is not often you see this technique used as most houses opt to use a crown seal cap and then, disgorgement add the cork with cage.

Food suggestion

Vadin-Plateau Champagne is a family run enterprise in the heart of the Great Valley of the Marne, in the village of Cumières, near Épernay, the capital of Champagne. Since 1785, a passion for wine and its cultivation has been transmitted from generation to generation and continues today to Yann, the ninth generation. The vineyards of Champagne Vadin-Plateau were formed over the generations, and have now reached seven hectares over seven villages, all chosen by the family of the wine makers for their characteristics: Aÿ, Pourcy, Hautvillers, Cumières, Damery, Venteuil, Château-Thierry. Exclusively on southern and southeastern slopes, the vineyard is composed of 44% Pinot Meunier, 39% Pinot Noir and 17% Chardonnay. Each tract was acquired based on its ability to carry the variety that the company wanted to use. Thus, Champagne Vadin-Plateau is endowed with a range of flavors from terroir that have been classified for some Premier and Grand Crus.
