The first cuvee created by Jérémy Bardiau, the "Préface" cuvee, bears its name well. It is a beautiful introduction to the House's expertise and style.
Blended from Pinot Noir (70%) and Chardonnay (30%) vines from a clay-limestone terroir, the Préface cuvee was vinified for 8 months on fine lees in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats and then aged on slats for at least 24 months.
The result is a rich, fresh and well-balanced champagne with fruity and mineral aromas that goes perfectly with smoked salmon, a filet of pike-perch in almond breading and small seasonal vegetables or simply as an aperitif.
This cuvee is the preface that makes you want to discover the other vintages of this talented young winemaker!

Nose: Smoked limestone (Marne calcaire), blackcurrant, liquorice, lemon, peppermint, almond, honeysuckle, cherry, apricot.

Bardiau Champagne is a family estate of 2.60 ha located in Verpillières sur Ource, in the south of the Côte des Bar.
This champagne family has been cultivating the vines for five generations. Jérémy Bardiau realized the singularity of his terroir in 2015 and started to vinify his grapes and create his own brand. This is how Champagne Bardiau was born, a modern Champagne House focused on excellence that values the diversity, quality and expression of its terroirs.
The vineyards of the estate, with their multiple terroirs, exposures and grape varieties, allow this artisan winemaker to produce wines of great complexity with an exceptional range of aromas.
