• Jean Vesselle Oeil de Perdrix Blanc de Noir Brut Champagne

This "Grower Champagne" is made entirely of Pinot Noir grapes that are briefly macerated for a hint of color, aged three years. The nose shows deep flowers with stone fruits and a light underripe raspberry tone. The palate has a touch of spice and light raspberry and strawberry with good presence and moderate acidity. D&M Tasting Notes

For nearly 300 years, the Vesselle family has been tilling the chalky soils of Bouzy and cultivating some of the village’s best-placed Pinot Noir vines. The family’s collection of grand cru vineyards and generations of leadership in championing Pinot Noir is what makes wines from Domaine Jean Vesselle such eloquent examples of Blanc de Noirs Champagnes. Wines here combine a classic Champagne elegance with the signature Bouzy power, especially in wines such as ‘Oeil de Perdrix.’ 

This unique rose de saignée is a taste of Champagne history, a style of wine long forgotten before winemakers Delphine and David Vesselle—to honor the traditions of their Champagne-making forefathers—brought it back with great success. The family owns one of Champagne’s smallest walled vineyards, the ‘Petit Clos.’ Located just outside the Vesselle home in Bouzy, ‘Petit Clos’ is the pinnacle of the powerful yet elegant Bouzy style, pure grand cru Pinot Noir fermented in barrels made from oak trees from the Champagne region, and aged for a decade in bottle.
