This prestigious property has undergone a major transformation over the past decade, and is a grower to keep an eye on.
In 2002 noted oenologue Christophe Constant was brought into oversee a complete revival of this famous property. Christophe had worked for a number of years at Pol Roger but has always been interested in working on the growers side of the fence. Christophe comes from a family that owns no vineyards, so he has approached his passion from the consulting side of the business.
They possess just 5 hectares of vineyards, all with an average age of more than thirty years, spread across Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger and Avize. Christophe likes to harvest his grapes quite late to obtain optimum concentration and intensity from the terroir. This also allows him to avoid chaptalization and to avoid malolactic fermentation - achieving the maximum flavour profile with perfect acid balance.
