    This is the first release of Aurélien’s specific terroir blanc de blancs from vines averaging 41 years old planted in very white chalky soil in the grand cru village of Oiry. He ploughs all his vines and adopts an organic, carefully considered approach. Vinified and aged in 65% cuve and 35% three to five year old barrels (with malos completed) this comes from 2013, with two years sur lattes under cap. It has the purity and delicacy you would expect of fine blanc de blancs, just delicious expression of fruit (stewed Sicilian lemons) and terroir, and notable length. 1g/l dosage. For drinking now to 2020.

    The second of Aurélien’s specific terroir 2013 champagnes comes from 36yo vines on north and north-west facing hillsides in Cramant and Chouilly where the soils are deeper and you find silty clay overlying chalk. Aged like the Oiry Grand Cru above, with malos completed, this is a denser, more tightly wound champagne, with a more pronounced structure but razorlike cut of acidity that suggests that it will age very well. Very attractive bitters on the finish. 2g/l dosage. For drinking now to 2021+.
