Harvested from mirrored terroir, L’Osmose compels a clear vision of Chardonnay’s full spectrum, from expressive fruit to fresh minerality.

L’Osmose is a blanc de blancs champagne made from a blend of historical Chardonnay vines older than 50 years from two plots that ‘look’ at each other and have contrasting terroir. This contrast is both geographical and stylistic—one is south-facing and receives plentiful sun, which gives a richness and ripeness to the resulting cuvée, while Les Côtes is north-facing, receiving less sunlight and therefore bringing higher acidity and freshness.
An equal proportion of fruit is manually harvested from each vineyard, and the vinification process occurs without fining or filtration. Dosage is 3–4 g/L, and production is set at 7000 bottles per year.
L’Osmose begins with an aromatic perfume of sea spray, green melon, peach and pear. A fine tension permeates the palate, overlaid by fruit of citrus, apple, pear and apricot—pleasantly whole, on their skins and stems—with notes of brioche and biscuit. Terroir is translated in the long, uplifting finish of chalky minerals and salinity, resulting in a unique blanc de blancs flowing with symbiotic harmony.
Best enjoyed from the Lehmann Jamesse Prestige, Grand Champagne 45 handmade glass.
A perfect pairing with fresh fish such as salmon sashimi, served with fresh wasabi and Japanese soy sauce, or oven-roasted, crispy skin wild barramundi fillets served with simple steamed greens.
