Cultivated from the House’s best parcels on the south slopes of Épernay, the Blanc de Blancs is a concise statement of terroir—pure, focused and energetic.

From the terroirs of Chavot and Épernay, Aurélien Laherte produces a Blanc de Blancs (100% Chardonnay) in a Brut Nature, or zero dosage, style. Here, the vine roots reach 2–3 metres deep into chalky subsoils, precisely transmitting mineral salts to the fruit, which results in flavours both lively and briny ‘like the froth of the Atlantic Sea’, as Aurélien explains.
The average age of the vines is 35 years, and grapes are picked by hand. Assemblage comprises 50% barrel-aged reserve wines, and zero dosage further supports the finesse and purity of expression.
The elegant label was designed by a Scandinavian artist, highlighting the aromatics in the cuvée (such as flowers and citrus) and possible food matches (such as seafood).
Offering floral aromas and flavours of apple, lemon, white strawberries and salted butter in balance with crystalline minerality, the Blanc de Blancs has a persistent acidity and appetising finish that is dry and briny, perfectly cleansing the palate for the next sip or bite of food.
Best enjoyed from a Lehmann Jamesse, Grand Champagne 41 glass.
