A stunning grower Champagne, made with biodynamic farming methods. Expressive with notes of fresh almonds and yeast with baked “brioche” notes, as well as white fruits. A magnificent Blanc de Blanc, typically generous and round. This Champagne is powerful with a beautiful weight and ripe texture. The finish is incredible with chalky minerality and saline character.
Located in the south of Champagne, in the Côte des Bar you will find Vincent Couche, a grower, vigneron and artisan. His mother passed on her passion and know-how to Vincent, who is nothing short of a true perfectionist. In the vineyard or the cellar, he aims for nothing less than excellence.
Vincent is extremely knowledgable and understands each vine, plot of land, each slope intimately, farming all 13 hectares biodynamically across two terroirs: Buxeuil and Montguex. Buxeuil covers 10 hectares of mostly Pinot Noir and is characterised by steep slopes overlooking the Seine river. Soils are composed of limestone-clay and marl-clay according to each parcel, with high density to increase competition between the vines, resulting in berries with better maturity and flavour profile. His second terroir is in Montgueux, with 3 hectares of Chardonnay on chalk dating back from the Cretaceous period.
Vincent continuously studies the needs of his vines, supplying the energy they need using only biodynamic treatments. His preparations include medicinal plant treatments, cow-horn manure, pulverisation of crystallised silica and natural compost. His aim through biodynamic farming is to express the richness and complexity of his land to its full potential. Harvest is strictly by hand, sorted directly in the vineyard, with only ripe and healthy berries reaching the cellar to be pressed. Alcoholic fermentation uses only natural yeast, followed by vinification with little or no sulphites in partial or full barrel.
100% Chardonnay grown on chalk terroir in Montgueux near Troyes. Montgueux is one of the best places in Champagne to grow Chardonnay. About 27% of the base wine is vinified in barrel, with the end wine a blend of two vintages (2011 and 2012). No filtration, no sulphur added since 2016. 9 years on lees. Zero dosage. Certified organic, biodynamic and Demeter.
Champagne is one of the most versatile wine with food. We recommend seafood, butter-sauced fish like lobster, truffle dishes, duck, triple cream cheese, goat cheese, aged hard cheeses such as Comte or Gouda or a pavlova (but please avoid sweet desert or chocolate).
