Eugène Cuvee from the Louis Casters House is an exceptional cuvee made in honor of Eugène Cadel, the founder of the House in 1899.
This exceptional cuvee aged on lees for 7 to 8 years is a blend of 70% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Meunier and 15% Pinot Noir from the Marne Valley, the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims.
Like other wines of the Louis Casters House, this cuvee has the distinctive property of not having undergone malolactic fermentation. Malolactic fermentation, as with all fermentations, aims to develop the wine's aromas. Most Champagne Houses use malolactic fermentation to produce sweeter, mature and slightly lactic aromas. However, Louis Casters chooses not to use malolactic fermentation in order to preserve the fresh, floral and fruity aromas of the grapes.
The Eugène Cuvee is an exceptional brut (9g/l) champagne with great mineral depth.
Aspect: The Champagne has a pale golden yellow color, with deep yellow-green reflections that give depth to the flute. It has a fairly smooth appearance and is animated by fine, light bubbles.
Nose: The initial nose suggests peach, liquorice, fig and iodine aromas. When aired, the wine reveals notes of mango, blackcurrant, pear, white pepper, ginger, and biscuit.
Palate: The attack in the mouth is smooth and fresh with a creamy and smooth bubbles. The wine develops on the palate in a suave and patinated manner, with a creamy sensation of white and yellow fruits.

Louis Casters has been based in the village of Damery since its foundation by Eugène Cadel in 1857. His direct descendants, the fifth generation of the family, continue to develop the House with passion, combining both tradition and modern technologies. The House distinguishes itself by not using malolactic fermentation in any of its wines to preserve the fresh, floral and fruity aromas of the grapes.
