History

Vinified separately, this Cuvée is made exclusively with wine from the 2006 harvest, and was already judged to be exceptional in November when the wines were first tasted. The year that produced it began with a relatively cold winter followed by a mild spring and a variable summer (a heatwave in July and a rainy month of August). The harvest was ¿saved¿ by the sun and wind in September which provided ideal conditions for the grapes to reach maturity.

Regional Information

The Champagne wine region is a historic province within the administrative province of Champagne in the northeast of France. The area is best known for the production of the sparkling white wine that bears the region's name. EU law and the laws of most countries reserve the term ""Champagne"" exclusively for wines that come from this region. The high altitude and mean annual temperature of 10 °C (50 °F) creates a difficult environment for wine grapes to fully ripen. Ripening is aided by the presence of forests which helps to stabilize temperatures and maintain moisture in the soil. The cool temperatures serve to produce high levels of acidity in the resulting grape which is ideal for sparkling wine.
