PRODUCTION
The vines are mainly planted in shallow soil which encourages the roots to grow deeply into the underlying chalk, providing them with water and warmth. The Pinot Noir vineyard in Aÿ has a sunny, south-facing slope, which allows the grapes to reach excellent maturity. Sustainable and environmentally friendly agriculture is practiced wherever possible. The harvest is always done by hand. Grapes are whole bunch pressed and the juice is racked to a tank where it is allowed to settle for at least 12 hours. The clear juice is racked and yeast added to encourage a thorough fermentation at a cool temperature, approximately 15-17°C. After a short period of post ferment maturation, the wine is bottled with a yeast addition to allow for secondary, in bottle, fermentation. The dosage is 9 g/l.

TASTING NOTES
A fine Champagne, made in the classic tradition of the houses of Aÿ. Principally Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with a little Pinot Meunier, matured in cool chalk cellars before release.

FOOD MATCH
A classic apéritif, or try with good fish and chips!
