The Huguenot Tassin estate produces a vintage of beautiful complexity characterized by its freshness and fruitiness. 2014 was a complicated year in Champagne because of a cold and wet summer followed by a sudden shift in August. This forced winemakers to harvest very quickly. Those who were able to harvest at the right time enjoyed good quality grapes. This is the case for the 2014 vintage of this winemaker.
The low sugar dosage of this champagne (6g/l) allows us to make the most of all its distinctive qualities.
This 2014 vintage is a balanced blend of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Pinot Blanc is a little-known grape variety that is rarely used in Champagne due to its extreme fragility. The prestigious village of La Celle sur Ource is one of those few places that provide Pinot Blanc with favorable conditions for its development. The Huguenot-Tassin House cultivates it for its roundness and its very fine fruitiness.
A great vintage to enjoy now or to keep for a few more years in the cellar.

Founded in 1984 in Celles sur Ource, the Huguenot-Tassin House, whose vineyards cover 6 hectares, is located in the Côte des Bar region.
In 2008, the House was passed on to Edouard and Adeline Huguenot, the second generation of this winegrowing family.
Voluntarily reducing productivity to avoid rotting, the estate's vines are the subject of passionate attention.
By perpetuating the cultivation of pinot blanc, one of the traditional grape varieties of the Côte de Bars that is now disappearing, the Huguenots offer their champagnes a truly unique flavor.
