Description & Technical Information
-
You have to travel a long way from Epernay, heading south through the Cote de Blancs past all those famous Chardonnay villages, of Avize, Chouilly and Cramant and you come to the Cotes de Sezanne. Here in a tiny village of Congy you arrive at Ulysse Collin and the talented head of the business Olivier Collin. This cuvee is a Pinot Noir from a 6 hectare lieu dit, small area, called Maillons, which has heavy clay soils over chalk. Olivier owns 2.5 hectares here, and his vines average 40 years old. Super concentration, floral and enchanting.

Antonio Galloni
“The NV Extra Brut Blanc de Noirs Les Maillons is another gorgeous Champagne from Olivier Collin. Rich and ample on the palate, the Maillons shows all the textural richness of Pinot from this impeccably farmed parcel of 50 year-old vines in Barbonne-Fayel. Kirsch, mint, chamomile and dried flowers flesh out in a creamy, voluptuous Blanc de Noirs full of personality. In this release, Les Maillons is equal parts 2014 and 2013. Dosage is 2.4 grams per liter. Disgorged: March, 2018.”
