Bérêche’s Brut Réserve represents the array of 4 villages in which the family has holdings, and is an equal parts blend of the three main grapes of Champagne – Pinot Noir, Meunier and Chardonnay. Raphaël, along with his brother Vincent are continuing the foundational legacy that their father, Jean-Pierre began by bottling his own Champagnes as a grower-producer. The Brut Réserve is backed by 30% of wines from a perpetual reserve, adding depth & complexity that eclipse many other non-vintage cuvées on the market. The vines have been farmed in a biodynamic approach with the conversion of their vineyards corresponding to a higher quality of wines being produced by the brothers. The wines display incredible freshness and balance, integrating masterful usage of oak.

Jacques Lassaigne Les Vignes de Montgueux

What — 100% Chardonnay
Where — Champagne, France
When — NV

Savoury & complex with salty-minerality over fresh citrus aromas

+ Read More

Emmanuel Lassaigne leads the family domaine based in Montgueux, located towards the south of Champagne and near the city of Troyes, which was the former capital of the region. Montgueux’s nickname is the ‘Montrachet of Champagne’, descriptive of its incredible power that you see in the Chardonnay from the village. It is always one of the earliest villages be harvested due to its exposure and expedition. Emmanuel’s style is one of hard work and involvement, to the extent that he disgorges each bottle by hand as opposed to the commonplace use of machinery by almost all others in the region. Never content to rest on his laurels, Emmanuel is a man of constant re-invention and discovery with a number of small batch creations from year to year. Les Vignes de Montgueux (meaning, the vines of Montgueux) introduces his ranges of wines, with his signature approaches of using natural yeasts for primary fermentation, minimal use of sulphur and zero dosage. It demonstrates the pinnacle of producers from Montgueux and the potential for complexity from the village.

Mouzon-Leroux L'Atavique

What — 65% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay
Where — Champagne, France
When — NV

Red stone fruit aromas, hazelnuts and fresh citrus.

+ Read More

Sébastien Mouzon comes from a long line of vignerons and represents the 9th generation in the family. The domaine is a modest 7 hectares, almost all of which are located in his home village, the Grand Cru of Verzy. Since taking the helm in 2008, Sébastien has introduced both organic and biodynamic practices across the holdings and has gathered a cult following for his production. This bottle is a nod to his philosophy of atavism – a return to the former “ancient” or “ancestral” way of making Champagne.

L’Atavique sees around 25% old oak used for primary fermentation, with the remainder in stainless steel tanks, before spending 36 months on lees. The relatively long lees aging, especially for a non-vintage wine, helps to add depth and complexity to it. Verzy is often an overlooked village and is largely blended with other villages within the Montagne de Reims area. Now, Sébastien shines light on the village, demonstrating the complexities that it holds.
