About This Wine

“I have always been of the opinion that Champagne should be to wine what haute couture is to fashion.”

So said Alfred Gratien, who set a high bar when he established his Champagne house, which has been producing sparkling wonders since 1864. Gratien’s vision and commitment to quality live on today, three generations later, thanks in large part to the dedication of cellarmaster Nicolas Jaeger.

Jaeger’s father was a cellarmaster. So were some of his ancestors. Taking care of wine — particularly sparkling wine — is in his blood. Each harvest season, he is very meticulous in the way he oversees the fermentation of the wines, using traditional wooden casks. In the cellar, he takes a hands-on approach, caring for each barrel as if it were the estate’s only barrel.

In the Cuvee Brut Classique, Jaeger clearly and deliciously demonstrates the house style. Aromatic, beautifully balanced and with a long-lasting mousse, it embodies everything Alfred Gratien loved about Champagne.

About Champagne

Champagne is a sparkling wine produced by inducing the in-bottle secondary fermentation of the wine to effect carbonation. It is produced exclusively within the Champagne region of France.
