Tasting Notes

A fine champagne made in the classic tradition of the champagne houses of A˙, principally Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with some Pinot Meunier and matured in cool chalk cellars for 5 years before release. Depth, character and length epitomise the purity and finesse of Charles Chevalier’s champagnes.

In the vineyard

The vines are mainly planted in shallow soil overlaying chalk which encourages the roots to grow deeply into the chalk, providing them with water and warmth. The Pinot Noir vineyard in A˙ has a sunny south facing slope, which enables the grapes to reach excellent maturity. We try to undertake sustainable and environmentally friendly practices where possible. The harvest is always done by hand and usually takes place between the 15th of September and the 15th of October.

In the winery

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, approximatly 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.

Food Recommendations

Aperitif, good fish and chips.
