Another small house at the vanguard of generational change and reinterpretation of what champagne can be. From Montgueux, in the Aube départment, Emmanuel has taken over from his father to create a set of champagnes that capitalise on the villages anomalies from the surrounding terrioirs.
This single-vineyard wine comes from vines planted in the 1960s. The top soil here is clay and silex with an under layer of chalk giving its distinct minerality to the wine. In fact, this vineyard highlights the unique-ness of Montgueux terroir, which has the clay of the Aube, also the chalk of the Côte des Blancs.
Some white flowers, almonds, Orchard fruit and stone all come together for this unique and special cuvee, which unlike the Montgueux, part of is raised in old barrels.
