This Grand Cru, grower champagne is made in tiny quantities by Louis ChevalGatinois, who is the 12th generation of the family to be making champagne in the village of Aÿ . The family owns 7.5 hectares of vineyards, which are tended as if they were a garden, using sustainable practices. Pinot Noir is at the heart of the blend (80%), giving the champagne its powerful and structured backbone. Chardonnay brings a counter-balance of acidity and liveliness. Colour is a thrilling, mid-gold, with persistent bubbles. Aromas are intense and lifted, flavours recalling brioche, hazelnuts and delicately perfumed red berries. Full bodied, with marked structure, the finish is long lingering and refreshing.
