A Blanc de Blancs champagne is made exclusively from white Chardonnay grapes. Chardonnay, commonly blended with pinot meunier and pinot noir, develops aromas of white flowers and mineral notes. The freshness and finesse of this champagne will certainly enhance your aperitifs or your iodised dishes (oysters, fish, etc.).
An exceptional champagne, the Blanc de Blancs has won the hearts of even the most demanding tasters. Chardonnay, from which Blanc de Blancs is exclusively made, is one of the least common grapes in Champagne. It represents only a third of the vines grown in the PDO and is often blended with the two other main grape varieties (Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier). A 100% Chardonnay cuvée is, therefore, rarer to taste.
However, Chardonnay is not the only grape variety that is allowed to be used in the vinification of a Blanc de Blancs champagne... Other lesser-known grape varieties, such as Pinot Blanc, Arbanne, Pinot Gris and Petit Meslier, are sometimes added to the blend.
With its beautiful green gold colour, the Blanc de Blancs is characterised by a remarkable freshness and finesse. A floral nose, mineral notes and brioche flavours... Playing the card of elegance, this type of champagne has all the qualities to delight. The most famous Blanc de Blancs champagnes are made from Chardonnay grapes from the Côte des Blancs, a limestone terroir that stretches for 20 km south of the town of Épernay.
The Blanc de Blancs champagne will go well with delicate dishes such as fish, oysters and scallops. Also considered as the champagne of the aperitif, the Blanc de Blancs has all the reasons to be found on your table, for unforgettable moments...
