Les Prés Dieu (“the meadows god”) features white fruits and mineral notes that are rounded out by time in old oak casks. The bubbles are extremely fine for a young Champagne and the wine radiates with high energy. A mere 215 cases of this cuvée were produced.
Micro-producer Guillaume Sergent descends from a family that has been making wine for two centuries. His parents made wine under their own label until 2008, when Guillaume and his brother inherited their small family estate. His brother chose to grow and sell grapes. Farming on his hectare and a half, Guillaume decided on a different path and set out to start his own domaine. Having studied oenology and geology, he had a lot of winemaking experience but was never before able to make wines in his own style, leveraging organic and biodynamic principles. In 2011, he released his first wines. From parcels in Vrigny and Coulommes, just west of Reims, Guillaume continues to evolve and push boundaries. He speaks about his vinification style as a simple and precise process. Guillaume's philosophy is straight forward: nature and man have long developed great natural wine from these sites, why change that?
