Yann Alexandre

Champagne | Montagne de Reims | Courmas

Yann Alexandre and his wife, Séverine, share a passion for horticulture that directly informs their viticulture. “We grow the vineyard like a garden,” Yann explains. This is a high bar for two farmers working 6.3 hectares spread over 28 plots in nine villages. But is also essential to their philosophy: “I always try to put forward the characteristics of each plot of land and to reach perfect grape maturity and health.” Yann declares his aim is “as natural a Champagne as possible,” made from vital grapes, with minimal added sulfites, up to seven years lees aging, hand riddling and disgorgement, and “no detail left to chance.”

Yann Alexandre Blanches Terres Rosé 1er Cru

This rosé is a composition of chardonnay from the lieu-dit Les Blanches Terres in Coulommes-la-Montagne and pinot noir from the lieu-dit Saint Lié in the village Villedommange. 92% of the final blend is chardonnay which is primarily fermented in stainless steel where it is allowed to go through full malolactic conversion, while 15% is vinified in oak without malolactic. The wine is aged approximately 4 months in stainless and blended with 15% reserve wine before it is combined with a final 8% pinot noir red wine. The wine then spends a minimum of 48 months en tirage before digorgement.
