TASTING NOTES: Pinot Meunier imparts freshness and rich fruit driven flavors, Chardonnay creates elegance and finesse, and Pinot Noir adds depth and structure. The nose shows toasted brioche aromas with fine citrus notes. The palate is powerful and full-bodied revealing great freshness and amazing length.
VINEYARDS & WINEMAKING: Champagne Collet’s vineyard sources are in Premier and Grand Cru villages that reflect the diversity of Champagne’s terroirs. The fruit comes from 850 growers spread over 160 different crus (there are a total of 320 crus in Champagne). However, winemaker Sebastien Walasiak uses no more than 10% of the overall vineyard yields. Sebastien blends the base wines of the classic Champagne varieties from hundreds of individual vineyards and several vintages – vital, because blending is the ultimate art of Champagne and is the key to maintaining Champagne Collet’s incomparable house style. The wines are aged far beyond the minimum requirement in the winery’s 100-year-old chalk cellars resulting in softer wines needing less dosage.
