Dieser Champagner erweist sich als unvergleichliches Kraftpaket, welches ohne weiteres einen halben Tag vor dem Trinken geöffnet werden darf. So kommen all die wunderbaren Nuancen am besten zur Geltung. Karaffieren und in grossen Weingläsern ausschenken ist auch keine schlechte Idee.
Strong, shiny straw yellow, wonderful fine mousse with a firm mousse. Very intense nose, earthy notes such as smoke, peat, bog, mineral with a distinct yeasty note, then also honey and almonds, toasted nuts, wonderful notes of dried fruits and fresh berries, rhubarb and apple and apricot. Very complex on the palate, aromatic powerful and extremely dense structured, with a lingering finish.
The grapes come exclusively from selected in-house locations for the cuvées. Champagne Roger Barnier completely uses the first pressing to make his own champagne. In the production of fine wines, great emphasis is placed on the optimal composition of the base wines from different locations and parcels. Up to 35 basic and reserve wines are assembled before one of the cuvées is produced. The result is wonderful sparkling-fruity champagne.
Every champagne lover knows and recognizes the Côte des Blancs as a unique production area of great sparkling wines. Who has never heard the names Epernay, Chouilly, Avize or Oger? The Côte des Blancs is considered the cradle of the Chardonnay in the whole Champagne growing area. The villages are always picturesque amphitheater on the covered with vines hills. The Côte de Sézanne in particular combines the viticulture and the charm of communities outside of time. The champagne house Roger Barnier is located in this landscape. Frédéric Berthelot has been representing the fifth generation of vintners in this house since 1982, located on the rolling hills in and around Villevenard, in the department of the Marne. The rich soils in the region around the tranquil village of Villevenard are made of clay and limestone, with a remarkable density of chalk. This gives the champagne wines from these layers an impressive fruitiness. In the Côte de Sézanne the cultivation of Chardonnay outweighs clearly. This white champagne vine with prominent relatives in Burgundy feels good on the soils and in the special microclimate that protects the vines from spring frosts. The two other important grape varieties of Champagne, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, also thrive on this terroir. The handling of natural resources in harmony with nature is of particular concern to Frédéric Berthelot. In addition, the soils are fertilized with organic products, leaving the vines the time they need to develop and develop their unique taste. These are guarantors of success in order to be able to harvest the best grapes in the future.
