This is a small biodynamic domaine set up in the 1930's in the Marne Valley that works primarily with Pinot Meunier with a little Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Having taken back control of the family estate Jerome, has set about making wines expressive of site and soil, very much taking up the teaching of the vanguardist champagne master, Anselme Selosse.

Fully biodynamic and believers in biodiversity in the vineyard, Jerome has some 40 plots to work with,  the wines are fully aged on lees before resting in bottle for a further 15 -24 months depending on the cuvee.

Oeil de Perdrix is the name given to this very pale rose as it resembles the eye of the partridge. With little to no dosage, depending on the year, this is mostly Meunier (83%) and Chardonnay.

Pale salmon in colour from a short maceration this is vibrantly structured and savory compared to other rose Champagne's, a little herbal, red berries and blood orange, a little amaro even. Bright, fine and dry with intensity, this is an excellent bottle of gastronomic Champagne.
