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 "Ora Alba" Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Brut (2016 Base)

This 100% Grand Cru Chardonnay is a blend of several grand cru vineyards in Chouilly, Oiry and Cramant. This blend reflects Vignier's vision of what the northern Côte des Blancs looks like with its chalk, marl and clay soils. The wine is vinified and aged in stainless steel before the assemblage is aged a minimum of 6 years en tirage before disgorgement.
