This elegant, well balanced and delicately fruity tasting AOC label champagne can be enjoyed on all occasions. It is a subtle blend of 3 champagne grape varieties Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Charpentier family has been growing wine on the southern slopes of the Marne Valley in the Champagne area since 1855.

Today, Jean –Marc and Céline Charpentier are keeping up the family know how and values handed down from generation to generation, in their unique characteristic vineyard, in the Marne Valley.

Pairing: this very lively champagne is a must have for the aperitif and will go perfectly with your starters.
It is perfect with foie gras, and foie gras produce as well as with fish.

Tasting notes: this golden yellow champagne has a fresh fruity nose (mandarin, blackcurrant). Its gourmet palate is fresh with creamy effervescent notes. The finish is well balanced and persistent in the mouth with a light aftertaste of mandarin/blackcurrant.

Introducing the Vineyard:
Location: several vintages are grown over 72 plots of land around Charly Sur Marne in the Marne Valley
Vine population: the original aspect of this wine resides in the fact that the vines grown there are unique in the Champagne area. In general 90 % the vines grown in the area are Pinot Meunier whereas almost half of the vines grown in the vineyards in question are Chardonnay with a little Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir, thus lending its specific uniqueness to the expressiveness to this champagne.
Winegrowing: the exceptional exposure of the vineyards in the heart of the hills has helped, over the last 25 years, to convert to sustainable and reasoned wine growing. The high aromatic expression in the grapes is favoured rather than the yield thus allowing the soil to fully express itself.

Cépages :

Pinot Meunier : deuxième cépage le plus planté dans le monde, il donne au champagne tout son caractère fruité.

Chardonnay : cépage le plus cultivé dans le monde, il donne des champagnes délicats et parfumés.

Pinot Noir : cépage roi en Bourgogne, il offre des champagnes inimitables d'une très grande complexité aromatique.
