Cuvée Vieilles Vignes - Grand Cru

The base wine for this Vieilles Vignes (old vines) champagne comes from the Pierre Robert Haut, Tarclette and Varmery parcels.

 

These parcels are selected for the age of the vines – 45 years on average – because each vine stock yields a good one third fewer grapes than younger vines. This means the grapes have a more pronounced aromatic potential and optimum maturity on harvest. The primary aromas are typical of Aÿ Pinot Noir : blackcurrant, small red fruits, present on both the nose and palate, with a light spice on the finish.

 

The aromas evolve as the mousse develops in the bottle and to date there is a predominance of juicy fruits: white peach, confit lemon. Initially lively on the palate, the wine is nonetheless well-balanced, vinous, straightforward and well-structured with a long light finish. It will delight purists who favour single variety champagnes over blends.
