Keep it natural, baby.
The Blanc de Blancs is a blend of different Chardonnay parcels grown on sandy loam. The 2012 vintage, which the majority of this base wine comes from, was a difficult one—as it rained for four straight months. The harvest that fall was a small one but the grapes that were harvested created a regal and precise expression of the vintage—full of finesse with a long lingering finish.
Champagne Lelarge-Pugeot is an eighth generation winery in the premier cru Champagne village of Vrigny, France. The Pinot Meunier grape represents 60% of the total plantings, balanced by Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Husband and wife team Dominque and Dominque manage the winery along with their three children. Their father has worked the vineyards over thirty years. He began implementing practices in 1985 to transform the vineyards from conventional to organic and biodynamic farming. A pair of horses, Ursulle and Samba, plow the vineyards during the year, preventing soil compaction. Fining, commercial yeast and enzymes are never used and no sulfur is added at bottling. In 2012, Lelarge-Pugeot's first 100% organic harvest was AB certified. In 2015, the family will begin a winery expansion to deepen the cellars.
