Grower Champagne from the small village of Courjeonnet, Cote des Blancs. The Domaine was founded by Etienne, and now his two sons are involved with the winemaking. With only 7 ha, all harvested under "culture raisonnée" methods. This estate is located in the South of the Côte des Blancs. The vineyard is mainly spread in the village Courjeonnet, just by a small river called Le Petit Morin. The vines are facing south, where the 3 varieties are grown. Only 1500 cases produced. Each vintage is unique and blended to create the best of the terrior and vintage (no addition of reserve wines). The vinification takes place in small vats of 20hl.

Pale golden color, with delicate and persistent bubles. The aromas are quite apparent with hints of ripe pear and green apple, followed by a nice creamy mousse. Lengthy finish and complex, an unique style Champagne made with great care and quality. With only 6g/l of residual sugar, this Champagne has great dryness that balances with the acidity and touch of toasted oak and roasted nut flavors.
