CÔTE DES BLANCS
The Cote des Blancs is located south of Epernay and approximately eight miles in length, Chardonnay is the dominant grape (98%).
Renowned for its chalk sub soils, this region is perfect for the Chardonnay profile and also considered one of the greatest chardonnay terroirs in the world. With an impressive six Grand Cru and five Premier Cru villages, the Cote des Blancs produces pure, mineral-infused, elegant Chardonnays that age well.
The slopes enjoy great sunlight exposure - balancing cold, wet and frosty conditions.
The slope plain has the least top soil meaning that vines grow directly on chalky bedrock.
Steep south east / east facing slopes - perfect for Chardonnay, which enjoys the morning sun.
