AOP CHAMPAGNE


Fourth generation to cultivate this vineyard of nearly 7 hectares distributed in different regions of the champagne. Indeed, from generation to generation, the vineyard has grown at the same time as the appellation area is growing.

So, everything started in Avize on the Côte des Blancs with the great grandfather Vincent Waris. Then the grandparents went on the Sézannais to finish in the Aube with the parents of Bertrand.

 

The vineyard is distributed as follows:

► Chardonnay: 25% (Côte des blancs and Sézannais)

► Pinot noir: 68% (Sézannais, Epernay and Aube)

► Pinot meunier: 8% (Valley of the Ardre)

Diversity of soils and climates for a greater richness of aromatic notes.

Throughout the vegetative cycle, the vineyard is cultivated in a reasoned manner: use of 100% organic fertilizer, tillage (plowing), non-use of chemical insecticide, use of sexual confusion.

The use of the plow on certain plots allows the roots to go down to the depths of the best nutrients of the soil, a mineral component found in wines.

This work is in keeping with the rules of Champagne. A year's work, which culminates in the long-awaited period when clusters embellish and color while waiting for the hand that will pick them up
