Champagne Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes
100% Grand Cru Chardonnay. The core of the cuvée is made up of three vineyards with very old vines in Cramant and Avize. The first is a parcel of 50 ares in Avize: part of which is 30 years old and part of which is more than century old, planted by the grandfather of the 81-year-old gentleman Patrick, Gauthier’s father, purchased the vineyard from in 1989. The second parcel, planted in 1937, is in Cramant and belonged to Gauthier’s greatgrandfather. A third parcel is on the border of Cramant and Avize: two of the most assertive terroirs in the Côte des Blancs giving very saline and mineral wines.
