Notre avis : “Or pâle, bulles fines, cordon raffiné. Un 1er nez subtil et délicat de nuances d’agrumes (pamplemousse) qui laisse rapidement apparaître des notes toastées, vanillées et beurrées. En bouche, la fraîcheur d’une attaque pure et ample soutenue par une effervescence élégante. Belle minéralité, légèrement épicé (poivrée) offrant une finale crémeuse et exotique (mangue)
Température de service : 12°C
A boire : 2017 – 2018
Les vignerons :
The vineyard consists in the union of the Bergeronneau and Marion domains. It covers fifteen hectares, mainly in the Montagne de Reims. While their parents worked with a cooperative, Florent and Veronique have been vinifying their entire production themselves for over 30 years. They offer a dozen wines to highlight the different terroirs of their vineyard which consists of 75 plots. In their own words, « We love that our champagne has a unique personality, which is why we do not work with an oenologist, we decide of our mixes ourselves! »
La Grande Montagne de Reims is a vast forest-covered plateau between Reims and Epernay. Its sides are hills where vines grow on chalky soils, with some colluvium (debris from the erosion of other layers) generally on the lower half of the slope. Montagne de Reims is the kingdom of Pinot Noir (60% of the area), a strong and generous grape that fits so well with calcareous soils. The chardonnay, which matures quite early and is more susceptible to spring frosts, prevails on the eastern slopes of the mountain range, well sheltered from western winds.
