Wine made from grapes grown without synthetic pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides in the vineyard.


Tasting Notes

Champagne made from older vines renders a concentration in the wine that can't be missed. Aromas full of brioche, citrus, and pollen. Quite rich and generous, and the type of Champagne that will age well. Enjoy alongside anything richly-prepared from suckling pig to lobster.

In a recent lineup of vintage Champagnes, one bottle that stood out was this 2006 from Henriet-Bazin. They've been making Champagne since 1890 in the Montagne de Reims. This 100% Chardonnay, blanc de blancs, was incredibly enticing from the start, with aromas of honeyed almonds. The richness follows through to the palate with yeasty, ripe lemon zest, almonds, a puff of rice cracker, and chalky minerality. A beautiful sparkler for the table or a desert island.
