Description & Technical Information
-
Champagne Domaine La Borderie was created in 2013 by Simon and Marie Normand. As brother and sister, they took over the family estate of 11.5 hectares, located around Bar sur Seine in the Côte des Bar. This is 160kms south of Reims and if you drive a further 162kms south you are in Beaune! For over 100 years the family sold their grapes to the big brands then in 2013 they produced 6000 bottles and now they are making over 20,000 bottles. Important to the family has been conservation of biodiversity their area in 2013 classified as "High Environmental Value" and additionally certified "Sustainable Viticulture in Champagne."

In the vineyard they are constantly looking for limited harvest and a high degree of ripeness of the grapes giving a high concentration of fruit in the champagnes. The winery is ultra modern, gravity fed and with each batch vinified separately. A little oak is used typically 5-15% of oak-fermented wines, the stainless steel fermented wines go through the malolactic fermentation whereas in barrels it is avoided. Oxidative style is not to Simon’s liking, tension and fruitiness very much are.
