Vinification and Aging
Fermentation in oak barrels with storage of wines from previous years in steel containers, then refermentation in the bottle according to the Champenoise method . Aging of at least 82 months on the lees .
The Champagne wine region is what is called the "vineyard of hills" : the vines are mostly planted on the slopes of the hills.
The sides of the coteaux offer each vine an optimal exposure to the sun , allowing rainwater to run off, thus facilitating water drainage.
The composition of the soil is mainly made up of limestone , chalk and marl .
Gypsum has the property of retaining water by capillary action and its high porosity is a reservoir of water which gives the plant an adequate supply even during the driest summers.
