The millésime 2007 by Corbon is a white champagne of 100% chardonnay Grand Cru from Avize.
2007 was a difficult year for Pinot Noir and Meunier. However, the opposite was true for the Champagne Chardonnay, which stands out for its homogeneity and elegance, earning its spot in the top Champagne vintages.
This extra brut champagne contains 5g of sugar per liter. It stands out for the absence of any filtration during its production, giving it more authentic aromas and color, very close to what you get when it leaves the barrel.
Moreover, this champagne hasn't undergone any malolactic fermentation, giving it great freshness.
Aspect: Beautiful clear and bright color with fine bubbles that disappear quickly.
Nose: Fine and complex, mixing delicate notes of citrus, white fruits and spices.
Palate: Fresh, creamy and crisp. Very nice length.

The story of Corbon champagne begins in the aftermath of the First World War, when the great-grandfather of the current winemaker set down his suitcases in Avize and began working for one of the many champagne houses. During the 20's, he acquired more and more vineyards that he worked by himself, selling his grapes to other champagne houses.
The Corbon family didn't embark on the champagne making adventure until the 70's and the sharp drop of the price of grapes per kilogram. They became a harvester-manager under the leadership of Claude Corbon. From the very beginning, Corbon champagne followed simple yet drastic winemaking methods that still sets them apart from most champagne houses today. These are the guiding principles in the cellar: no filtration and no cold stabilization, a minimum aging period of 3 years in the cellar, or even longer!
