At a glance

Very fine bubbles bring forth a harmonious wine with wonderful complexity – stony minerality, lemon zest, white flowers, apples, and a touch of honey. Perfect with appetizers and lighter foods.

Winemaking

100% Chardonnay grown on chalky limestone soild. Grapes are carefully selected and hand harvested from old vines. Alcohol and malolactic fermentations carried out in steel tanks. Three years sur latte (vs. the 15 month minimum that is required by law). Low dosage – less than 5g/L.

The region – Bassuet

Located just a stones’ throw from the famous Côte des Blancs, 90% of the Bernard Lonclas vineyard is planted with Chardonnay, as opposed to the usual red grapes that the Marne Valley is typically known for.
