Champagne "Chemin des Chappes" Extra Brut Blanc de Noirs 1er Cru
50% Pinot Noir and 50% Pinot Meunier
Champagne "Les Prés Dieu" Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs 1er Cru
The majority of his parcels are located on a mid-slope with various exposures. "Prés Dieu" is made up of 100% chardonnay derived from an assembling of two parcels which are especially exposed: the one in Coulommes, otherwise known as the “Vignes Dieu” has southern exposure, while the one in Vrigny, known as “Prés,” where the cuvée gets its name, has eastern exposure.
The vines grow on a bed of “sables du Cuisien” (fine sand) with traces of Bartonian limestone rubble on the surface, and numerous small fossil shells.
Vinification for both wines is identical. It is done in 228L and 500L barrels. No enzymes, no commercial yeasts, no fining, no filtration, nor cold stabilization. Manual riddling of bottles, extra brut dosage of MCR (concentrated and rectified grape must) less than 5g/L
