These winemakers represent what moi, Henri, calls the “generational shift” in Champagne. All the myths and pretense about Champagne are turned upside down and these charming Frenchmen (in this case, but also women) are putting common sense wine logic back into a region driven by commerce and scale.
Growers such as these are bringing Champagne back onto the trajectory it followed centuries ago, like its neighbors in Burgundy and the Rhone where quality was synonymous with more specific terroir & place names, not broader regions. They are also focused on organic and biodynamic principles.
Each of these Champagnes are highly limited in production.
A vôtre santé!
