We are thrilled to showcase our Estate Vineyard for our third Single Vineyard Sparkling release. Starting with the 2014 vintage, we have selected fruit from a single vineyard each year that truly exemplifies its site, wholly and vividly. Our Estate Vineyard, first planted in 1987, comprises the rolling 100 acres surrounding our Château. Planted with 66% Chardonnay and 33% Pinot Noir grapes, this vineyard has been with us since the beginning and annually contributes several vineyard blocks to our tête de cuvée Le Rêve Blanc de Blancs.

In general, 2005 was warm and dry. After a winter that was hard but mostly dry, spring was characterized as being very mild with a few warm periods. The flowering period ran from 15th to 19th of June. After a period of concentrated rainfall towards the end of June and the beginning of July was dominated by hot weather, and August by cool weather. The grape harvest, which began on 12 September, was spread over a long period of time, and took place, in mild damp weather. The wind picked up at the end of the harvest, which provided a healthy, abundant crop. The Chardonnays, of excellent quality, are characterized by freshness and their mineral quality, as well as their generous, long finish. The Pinot Noirs give very clean, vinous and ample wines.
Perfect for a truly special celebration, this Champagne would also go very well with a starter based on seafood, shellfish or fish.
