About This Wine

For generations, the grape growers of France’s Aube department simply supplied the Champagne houses to the north.

More recently, however, some growers in the Aube also have become winemakers, particularly in the area known as Cote des Bar. Emulating the vignerons of Burgundy, they are seeing production through from vineyard to bottle, taking great care to farm the finest grapes possible.

A great example of this trend is bottled and ready to uncork in the Champagne of Philippe Fourrier, a grower in Cote des Bar since 1847. The estate vineyard is on 50 acres of clay-calcareous soils, with 35 of those acres devoted to growing Pinot Noir. Sustainable farming is practiced, which explains why the estate has been around for so long.

The current “Brut” release, made entirely of estate-grown Pinot Noir grapes, exudes fine and persistent bubbles and a very long finish, with lip-smacking flavors adding to the enjoyment.

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.

    Inconsistent. First bottle was delightful. Second bottle was somewhat oxidized.
