The Côte de Sézanne is mostly planted with Chardonnay as the region has the same chalk disposition as the Côte des Blancs but Pinot Noir is becoming increasingly popular.
The soil is composed of chalk with large amounts of marl and sand and the south-eastern exposition is particularly favourable to riper and bolder expressions of Chardonnay compared to the leaner styles found in the Côte des Blancs.
Good sunlight exposure and warmer than the Cote des Blancs.
Chalk with some pockets of clay.
A hilly area where most of the vineyards face southeast.
