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 Brut Noir

The Brut Noir is typically composed of 50% pinot meunier, 35% chardonnay and 15% pinot noir collected from 20 different organically farmed plots spread across the communes of Courmas, Bouilly, Merfy, Chenay and Saint-Lumier-en-Champagne. The wine is fermented and aged in stainless for 6-8 months before it is blended with 30% reserve wine and aged en tirage for 4-5 years.
