Description & Technical Information
-
From one of the most talked about new wave of grower champagne producers Olivier Collin in the small village of Congy in the Cotes de Sezanne is producing this Blanc de Blancs from Les Pierrieres a 1.2 hectare vineyard with chalk laden soils interspersed with big flints and its planted to just Chardonnay. In Les Pierrières vineyard the topsoil is only 10-15 cm, meaning the vine roots are embedded deep in to the chalk, not dissimilar to the conditions in the famous Cote des Blancs region an hour to the north. That distance further south makes all the difference and it is warmer and that shows in the champagne which is sitting in style somewhere between Champagne with a gesture to Burgundy! The still wines undergo partial malolactic fermentation, so Olivier is able to maintain that balance of richness while maintaining mineral structure and freshness. A true collectors champagne and a must have experience.
