J. Vignier

Champagne | Côte de Blancs | Cramant

Vignier’s holdings are now in the Grand Cru Villages of Cramant, Chouilly and Oiry, as well as some parcels in the Côte de Sézanne. Nathalie first worked as an insurance adjuster for wineries in Burgundy and Champagne and was called home to take over the estate by her father. She is slowly aligning the estate to her philosophy: higher ripeness, a return of oak to the cellar and no use of herbicides or pesticides. The Vignier family motto is “La bonté de l’esprit et la grandeur de courage,” which means “the goodness in spirit, and the courage to greatness.” There is a lot to look forward to from this grower in the future.

J. Vignier "Aux Origines" Blanc de Blancs Brut (2016 base)

“Aux Origines” could be tanslated as “where it all began.” This blanc de blancs is made entirely from "Les Simarts", the very first vineyards planted by Nathalie’s granparents, Marie-Louise and Paul, in Barbonne-Fayel, Côteaux Sézannais, in the 1960s. This cuvée is 100% chardonnay, fermented in steel tanks with full malolactic conversion, bottled in April following harvest and aged minimum 36 months prior to disgorgement.
