100% Grand Cru fruit from the villages of Chouilly and Ay. Only produced in exceptional years, of which 2013 was most definitely one. Chardonnay dominant, showing gorgeous white flowers, green apple and sweet caramel popcorn. A small percent of Pinot Noir adds a savoury complexity. Matured on lees for 5 years before release which adds layers of complex brioche and toast flavours as well as a persistent, fine bead of bubbles. The family Autreau is an old family from Champillon - ancient documents certify their presence since 1670. This family is linked to the farming of the land and to the Champagne production as far back as it goes - the beginning of the 18th century when Dom Perignon found bubbles in his wine.
