Chardonnay. The vineyard is situated at the bottom of the slope facing due south; calcareous soil of clayey, sandy, silty structure over blocks of Campanian chalk. Planted to Chardonnay with 12,000 vines over 1.3 hectares in 1962. Chablis pruning.
A wine of extraordinary finesse and length. Year 2008 was characteristic of our northern clime: spring was cool and rainy, summer dry and windy, as was September. Proof that Champagne can produce a great vintage despite a cool growing season! Grapes harvested on 26 September 2008; 10°7 alcohol, 7.7 gr/l acidity.
8,296 bottles and 402 magnums. Bottled on 18 May 2009. Disgorged in April 2018. Dosage: 2.5 gr/l. Champagne House Notes
